Vintage Japanese Wooden Spinning Acrobat ToyVintage 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.
