Vintage Japanese Wooden Spinning Acrobat ToyVintage Japanese Wooden Spinning Acrobat ToyVintage Japanese Wooden Spinning Acrobat Toy

Very cute vintage circa 1890 to 1920, Japanese acrobat toy.
The toy is like a carved wooden Daruma which is a Japanese representation of a God in the form of a pear shape.
This piece has rather fierce painted features with heavy eyebrows.
It hangs from a bar suspended by a frame.
When the knobs are turned, the figure does simple acrobatic tricks around the bar.
These acrobatic toys were made for many centuries, and this a nice vintage piece.

Condition: Works well. Paint a bit faded and tiny split in the wood at the side.

Size: Base 3 5/8 by 1 3/4 inches. Height 3 3/4 inches.
