Om föremålet

An American tin toy from the latter part of the 19th Century that has been tucked away in an attic and recently discovered in Rhode Island. Never before in a collector's hands, this fabulous toy when the clockwork mechanism is activated will roll along the floor while the lioness enclosed within the cage appear to pace to and fro. This toy, when discovered was in need of minimal repair to a couple of solder joints and lacking only two vertical bars on rear of cage door. One of the finest known original examples to exist today. Painted in vibrant colors; red, blue, black, apricot and white with japanned highlights. Normally due to the age (over 100 years) japanning tends to oxidize, the japanned parts on this toy are still bright and shiny! This toy has not only great appeal but is a prominent addition to any collection as well. SIZE: 13-1/2" long overall. CONDITION: Overall excellent condition. Minimal inpainting to white crossbar on hitch and small areas where crossbar is attached/soldered to horses. Cage wagon itself appears to be completely original other than two replaced slats previously discussed. 1-11816
