Georg Fischer Nuremberg, Germany Ca 1910 lithographed tin penny toy horse-drawn dray wagon with driver uniformed in red and orange with red cap and black boots. Wagon has yellow exterior with black trim, blue interior and white spoke wheels. One lower front corner of the wagon (by the driver's feet) is rolled inward, probably a manufacturing flaw, slight scuff on one shoulder of the horse and a few other minor losses, as shown. Overall the piece is in excellent condition.
4 7/8 inches long, 1 1/4 inches wide at the front wheels, 2 inches tall; wagon is marked 'Made in Germany' and the horse is marked 'Germany'.
This toy was in an extensive grouping of old Christmas ornaments, with other tin and wooden miniatures used for holiday display, not play. I'll be listing additional pieces in the next few weeks, so be sure to bookmark my shop to receive quick alerts when they appear.
Uncommon antiques for the investor and choice collectibles for the clever collector.
COLLECTION: A time machine on a shelf; a museum in the kitchen. Reach out to touch the memory of sweet childhood laughter.
