This old wind up celluloid toy is a black waiter dressed in blue pants, white jacket and a chefs hat. His arms are jointed and he's carrying a plate with yellow, green and pink food in his right hand. When wound, he spins in a circle then heads off in a straight line, then spins around again heading off in another direction continuing this pattern until he runs down. He appears to be marked; Made in Occupied Japan on his back. You can see the fun action on Facebook. Search for Ogee's Antiques on Facebook or look for a link to our Facebook page under "Our Favorite Links" on our Ruby Lane Home Page.
He measures about 4 3/4" high and is very nice working condition showing minimal wear or use.
