Measuring nearly 4.75 inches tall, this wonderfully rare, early 1920's, lithographed tin toy is unmarked.
The little boy shuffles along quite nicely via his original wind-up mechanism.
Over 80 years old, he is still quite sturdy as he was well made, but does show some superficial scratching from use over the years.
Of particular interest is the little boy's face which is highly exaggerated, a racist characterization that was unfortunately typical of the era when this toy was produced.
