ASTONISHINGLY RARE AND HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT ORIGINAL STEIFF ROD BEAR WITH ELEPHANT BUTTON.

Where it all began-almost. The oldest Steiff teddy bear design as we know it in existence today. This utterly remarkable blond mohair bear is rod jointed, the second type of jointing Steiff experimented with at the very early turn of the last century. Bears with rod jointing were only produced for a small number of years and very few remain today. This bear is made from blond mohair, is 5-ways jointed, and has felt paw pads.

His early and lovely face is detailed with black shoebutton eyes, a shaved muzzle, a black hand-formed gutta percha nose, and a light brown mouth. And the pièce de résistance, teddy has his original elephant button in his ear, perhaps the most desirable Steiff ID in the world. SIZE: Overall 15″ t (38cm). Sitting 10-1/2″ t (26cm).

Attributed to Fallows, embossed tin platform with cast wheels and a vibrantly painted goat and jockey style rider. An exceptionally visually appealing form and seldom found in this remarkable paint condition. SIZE: 9″ t x 8-1/2″ h. CONDITION: Toy appears to be in exceptional original paint. Upon blacklight inspection, some minor repairs have been made. The left ear and horn appear to have been reattached with minimal paint touch up. Right ear and horn also appear to have been reattached with paint restoration prevalent to the horn itself.

FALLOWS EARLY AMERICAN TIN JEROME PARK TOY.

A wonderful stylized toy from the 1880s featuring four articulated horse and riders on a wheeled tin platform. In the latter part of the 1860s there was a racetrack in Westchester County in New York and obviously this toy was created to replicate the races that took place during that time period. Typical of toys, they emulated the social, political, and daily occurrences of the time period. A bit odd that you would give a child a toy that encouraged gambling such as a racetrack toy, but perhaps during that time period, this was not taboo. When the toy is pulled along the floor, by a series of eccentric axles and pivoting horses, the toy simulated galloping. Fallows employed this particular style base with a number of their other toys such as the rabbit, dogs & hunter, farmer & pig, etc. SIZE: 9″ l. CONDITION: Toy appears to be all original. However, there is a fair amount of paint loss to the white horses. Blue base is good to good plus condition. 1-14203 (1,500-2,500) – Lot 3240

GOODWIN WALKER WITH CLOCKWORK CARRIAGE.

A visually and aesthetically pleasing toy with an early patent date of 1867. This particular version is perhaps the nicest of several versions that were produced. Manufactured with a wooden carriage as well, this particular example is painted and stenciled tin employing vibrant coloring with a fanciful cast iron front wheel with a heart motif. This toy is wound using a key as opposed to the wooden carriage that is oftentimes “back wound”. The body of the walking doll is elaborately designed body to simulate a person walking and as the carriage proceeds forward she would engage this “walking method” behind the carriage as though she were pushing it along. Various heads on the walking doll were also utilized, including papier mache, pressed linen head or china. This particular version is the patented linen head version. Seated in the carriage is a parian style all bisque girl of the same time period which was probably added at some point in time, but not original to this toy. SIZE: 12″ l x 11-1/2″ h. CONDITION: Overall condition is very good to fine. It appears that the interior yellow seat has had some minimal aged touch up. 1-13891 (1,000-2,000) – Lot 3241

14″ DOCTORS CART WITH FULL BODIED HORSE.

A great form and an unusually large size for a toy of this nature. The horse itself is finely detailed including its puffy tail, an abundance of black stenciled trappings and its figure-8 belly band. Seated figure (red on jacket touched up) has more of a jockey appearance than a doctor, so perhaps calling this toy a doctor’s cart is a misnomer. SIZE: 14″ l. CONDITION: Overall very good plus. 1-14206 (2,200-3,000) – Lot 3242

A fine petite early American tin toy attributed to George Brown featuring opening rear compartments and a tilting driver canopy. Twin white stallions pull this wagon that is heavily stenciled on the rear goods section. Horses appear to have some aged solder repair, most noticeable where they are attached to the yoke assembly.

GEORGE BROWN CLOCKWORK LARNARD FIRE TOY.

A totally odd form for a clockwork toy from the mid-19th century. A very early style of a fire pumper with its three original dimensional lead firemen. One with a fire horn and the others operating the equipment. Not only is the form highly unusual, but some of the coloring employed is rarely found on any other American tin toys. The flesh tone/peach coloring to the basic framework is rather odd and the stenciling used to decorate it is not found on any other American tin toy. To be quite frank, every aspect of this toy is most unique. The clockwork mechanism propels the toy along the floor and through a wire soldered to the rear axle, a bell is struck. A front fork extends the front wheels forward of the entire unit can steer it left or right. Simply put, this toy is an enigma, not only in style but also design, color and any other aspect imaginable. A rare opportunity to own a toy of this nature that for the most part is in virtually very fine all original condition. SIZE: 11″ l x 7-1/2″ h. CONDITION: As described above, upon close examination, the only issue that could be found with this toy is there appears to be the slightest amount of paint enhancement to the left rear wheel covering. Perhaps the solder had broken loose and in need of a minor repair. 1-14198 (6,000-12,000) – Lot 3245

EARLY AMERICAN TIN FIRE PUMPER.

A fine all original example in untouched original condition and appearing to have no repairs or issues. An eccentric axle would cause an iron weight to strike the bell as it was pulled along the floor. A fireman sitting atop the horizontal cylinder guided the twin horses to the fire scene. Unique in form, this must have been a somewhat inexpensive toy for the time as the toy has no name or fanciful stenciling, but still exhibits a great deal of charm and appeal. SIZE: 12-1/2″ l. CONDITION: As stated above, the toy appears to be in untouched all original condition. 1-14213 (3,000-5,000) – Lot 3246

IVES CLOCKWORK SEESAW.

A classic American clockwork toy from the 1880s time period depicting a metronome type action. A triangular shaped base containing a clockwork mechanism and fancifully decorated with stenciling and flowers. A wooden plank featuring a boy on one end and a girl on the other proceed with a seesaw type action when mechanism is wound. An interesting and almost hypnotic toy when in action that is rarely found and sought after by collectors of early American clockwork toys. This particular example still retains a black paper label on the seesaw, however with 100+ years of age, lettering has become somewhat indecipherable. Overall condition is very good-plus. The figures dressed in their fabric outfits (possibly redressed many years ago), feature painted tin or brass faces that retain much of their original painted finish. SIZE: 18″ long. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-13894 (2,500-4,500) – Lot 3247

FALLOWS/GEORGE BROWN CIRCUS CAGE DRAWN BY PLATFORM ELEPHANTS.

An unusually large early American tin toy possibly by either Fallows or George Brown. The thought of combining a fabulous platform toy with a trainer along with mom and baby pachyderms to draw this over sized cage wagon boggles the imagination. Ingenuity transformed from reality to toy form! The cage wagon is truly oversized compared to any other circus cage wagon that is known to exist. It is almost absurd to think of placing a lion and a leopard in a cage together. The coloring on the cage is very unusual and a strange combination of colors yet visually attractive. Quite an impressive toy with an abundance of charm as well as presence. SIZE: 20-1/2″ l x 6-1/2″ w x 8-3/4″ h. CONDITION: Overall very good plus original condition. The cage itself appears to be in untouched condition, the platform toy has some paint/solder work at large elephants feet and yoke wires. 1-14199 (5,500-6,500) – Lot 3248

GEORGE BROWN CLOCKWORK “ECLIPES” LOCOMOTIVE.

A very early style locomotive with the typical wood burning smokestack typical of the 1850s-60s era. One must question if this was interpretation by a toy maker who chose to place the steam chests at the rear of the locomotive and not employ rear wheels or so if some form of this locomotive existed in the real world. Unusual in the fact that it employs a fair amount of wood in addition to heavily stenciled tin. Regardless, this unique form has a great deal of subtle charm and is quite appealing. Clockwork mechanism contained within the boiler and steering of locomotive is accomplished by a small wheel on the underside. Sticker on the underside indicates this toy was originally in the Barenholtz collection. SIZE: 9-1/2″ l. CONDITION: Toy appears to be in all original condition. Brass bell is perhaps an early replacement. Overall very fine on wood parts and good on painted and stenciled tin. 1-14205 (1,400-1,800) – Lot 3249

11″ EARLY AMERICAN TIN DELIVERY WAGON.

Perhaps a unique form, it appears the enclosed wagon has a center section with a simulated drop cloth curtain that could roll down. Painted in dark blue with gold stenciling, the tin roof (fair amount of paint loss) and red simulated curtains houses a bench seat in the middle of the wagon instead of at the front as traditionally found. A white horse with a bushy tail would guide this wagon down the street. Unusual flesh tone coloring on the inside of the wagon. SIZE: 11″ l. CONDITION: Horse has typical aged solder repair to wires that attach it to the wagon. Otherwise toy appears to be in original condition and finish. 1-14207 (1,000-1,500) – Lot 3251

8″ ARTICULATED CLOCKWORK DOCTOR’S CART.

This toy is a bit of an oddity as toys this size are rarely clockwork as well as having articulation to the horse. The gentleman is seated in the cart with the clockwork motor on the underside of the cart. When the toy is wound, it proceeds forward and the heart shaped wheel, connected to a wire enables the horse to gallop. Direction of the cart can be controlled by altering the pivoting front assembly, allowing the cart to go straight or in a circle. SIZE: 8″ l. CONDITION: Overall good with only the red coloring showing a fair amount of paint enhancement/touch-up. 1-14204 (800-1,200) – Lot 3252

ALTHOF BERGMAN HORSE ON A CLOCKWORK WHEELED BASE.

A large Early American tin running horse affixed to a clockwork base similar in nature to the patriotic bell toy (see Julia’s Malcolm Deisenroth Sale; 6/30/2010; Lot 3042) or to the more often seen Althof Bergman Boy on Tricycle. The toy features a brown horse attached by an A-frame armature connecting to the covered clockwork mechanism. A separate wire attached to an eccentric gear on the mechanism and the horse enables the horse to roll along on the floor in a galloping type manner. As was normal for this time period toy companies utilized all aspects of the various pieces and parts they had on hand. The front wheeled fork of this toy was used on the Goodwin Walker toy and as discussed above the clockwork mechanism was used on several different toys. Due to a lack of manufacturer catalogs/jobber sheets displaying the variety of different toys available will let collectors today often find unlisted toys that are found in attics or tucked away in old time collections such as in this case. SIZE: 10″ l x 8-1/4″ h. CONDITION: Overall very good original condition with some in-painting to red clockwork mechanism covering and re-soldering/paint touch-up to horse at the “A”-frame/saddle area. 1-14200 (3,000-4,000) – Lot 3254

LARGE AMERICAN TIN HORSES ON WHEELED BASE PULL TOY.

A very unusual form for a toy, this incorporates two large wheels with eccentric axle. When the toy is pulled along the floor, the horses gallop in a realistic manner. For years, this toy has been attributed to Fallows. However, an embossed brass tag is riveted into place with the name E.J.B. Whitaker with various patent dates from 1874-1889. One horse is painted in brown and the second in black. Accompanied by what appears to be its original push/pull rod. Although the brown horse is somewhat devoid of paint, the form and presence of this toy is most impressive. The horses themselves are quite large for an American tin toy. Both tails appear to have been replaced. SIZE: 14″ l x 9-1/2″ h. CONDITION: As stated above. Brown horse has a fanciful adornment atop his belly band that is not present on the black horse. 1-13903 (1,500-2,500) – Lot 3255

IVES CLOCKWORK ROWBOAT.

Other than the clothing on this toy from the latter part of the 1800s this toy retains exceptional original paint. The green decking stenciled with gold lettering has a patent date of February 9th, 1869 and oftentimes various names were stenciled onto the boat as well. This particular example is lettered “Carrie”. When the mechanism is wound the child would place this boat in a pond and the gentleman oarsman would row furiously about in the water. Typical of Ives, they utilized figures with wooden bodies and an applied and painted brass mask face. Overall a fine example of a most impressive toy that is well over 100+ years old.

EARLY AMERICAN TIN MERRY GO ROUND TOY.

A most unique form depicting a gentleman on a three wheeled base with a circular merry go round with three animals and a child behind him. When the toy is pushed along the floor, the platform would spin in a counter clockwise motion. Two goats and a dog with a basket along with a youth are on the platform. Toy itself and its form appear to be an original entity but there has been significant overall restoration to this toy. Still with this in mind, it is quite appealing and noteworthy. Perhaps the original maker was George Brown but no definitive attribution can be made. SIZE: 8-1/2″ l x 8-1/2″ h. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-13890 (1,500-2,500) – Lot 3257

EARLY 20″ LIVE STEAM MARKLIN PLEASURE/RIVERBOAT.

Typical of the Marklin firm they made a variety of toys from the later part of the 18th century through the mid 20th century that by today’s standards were excellent quality, intrinsically pleasing and highly sought after by collectors today. This particular example circa 1910 is of a pleasure boat the “Priscilla” that would have traveled in real life, the lakes and rivers of the world. The Marklin firm utilized 3 methods of propulsion, a clock work mechanism, an electric motor powered by battery and in this case a live steam motor. Oftentimes because of the live steam method and being in water the boat after 100+ years would be in poor finish and thus as in this case needing restoration. This particular boat has been fully restored to its original glory and quite possibly their might be a few replacement parts such as the masts and or lifeboats? Expert restoration including some wear and grazing to the paint give the impression that the boat actually is in remarkable original finish. Back in the day this was quite an expensive toy and it is hard to believe that this was actually a play toy for a male youth. Typical of Marklin so much attention paid to the details, including the striped deck, funnels, lifeboats, etc. A wonderful item for a collector and at only a fraction of the price of one in pristine original finish! SIZE: 20″ long. CONDITION: Expert older restoration. Boat including steam plant appear to be intact and complete, lacking only the rear flat on stern of boat. 1-13651 (12,500-17,500) – Lot 3262

SCHONNER “AVISO GREIF” LIVE STEAM GUN BOAT.

Believed to be the largest version of this particular early 20th century boat that Schonner produced (37-1/2″ l). Not as complicated and detailed as Marklin boats, but somehow in its simplicity, it is quite appealing and intrinsically pleasing. A bevy of smokestacks, funnels, lifeboats, and mounted guns further add to the appeal of this wonderful toy. Live steam motor is contained within the hull of the boat under the cabin area and powers the twin screw propellers. Professionally restored a number of years ago and aging has set in to give it an original appearance.Schonner tended to use some lifelike features including cast davits to lower the lifeboats, and a pair of smaller signal masts (red/green) along with a fancifully cast yardarm on the bow of the boat. Boat is supported by a wheeled framework for display or perhaps to pull it along the floor (of more recent vintage). SIZE: 37-1/2″ l. CONDITION: Overall some uniform chipping and paint flaking, most notably to the right underside of hull. 1-13650 (13,000-15,000) – Lot 3263

JEP VOISON BLUE TORPEDO WITH ORIGINAL BOX.

Of the Jep series of automotive vehicles, this is a more elusive example. Enameled in dark blue with a nickel plated radiator and headlamps on either side. An open styled car with a simulated roof folded down with a clockwork mechanism that engaged the rear axle by means of a drive shaft. Oftentimes Jep incorporated this lifelike feature in their toy automobiles. Interior lever would engage the mechanism in forward or reverse. Steering is accomplished via the steering wheel within the vehicle. Accompanied by its original box with directions (in French of course) on underside of box lid. SIZE: 13″ l. CONDITION: Box is in relatively good condition with a flap on the lid in need of reattachment.

Tin wheels with simulated spokes, the vehicle has a complicated clockwork mechanism that also controlled the direction of the vehicle. The original separate plaster race car driver sits within the vehicle. As Jep vehicles go, this is a most elusive and difficult example to find. SIZE: 17″ l. CONDITION: Overall very fine, but a fair amount of paint loss to brown seat. In need of some minor straightening and re-soldering to front pinion assembly. 1-14211 (2,500-3,500) – Lot 3265

REED/MERRIAM FIREHOUSE.

An exceedingly rare toy, circa late 19th century, with only a handful of surviving examples. Most interesting, the engine house constructed of wood and painted was probably made by Reed for the Merriam toy company. Originally a tin and wooden engine would have been placed inside the house and by means of a lever a the rear of the firehouse, the doors would pop open and the horse drawn pumper would lurch forward off to the fire. Separate activations for a fireman popping out of the front window over the doors and another for the fire bell. For a similar and complete version, refer to Julia’s November 2013 auction, lot 3110. A couple noteworthy points is that there is actually a window cut into the right side and stenciled on the rear of the building are indicators for the four separate actions: bell, front doors, engine release, and fireman appearing in front window. Most toys of this time period were handmade, so it is not unusual to find oddities and variations among the same toy. Although this was designed for a specific fire engine, this would be a great accompaniment for any early American tin fire engine. SIZE: 10-3/4″ l x 7″ w x 9″ t. CONDITION: Toy is good to very good, lacking fire vehicle and various components. Some separation to wooden casing and various nail holes to roof. 1-14114 (1,000-2,000) – Lot 3294

ORGAN GRINDER AND PERFORMING BEAR MECHANICAL BANK.

A very fine example of a classical mechanical bank with a clockwork mechanism. Mechanism can be activated by either a lever on the base or depositing a coin in the organ grinder. When activated the bear proceeds to spin about while the organ grinder cranks the hurdy gurdy device. A youth and a police officer looking over the rear fence enjoying the folly of the action. Overall paint is vibrant with an abundance of yellow and red highlighting to the green base. The house itself has wonderful copper highlighting to the windows and the red roof has excellent paint. The back fence with the police officer and youth is intact and also has a very fine paint finish. A really nice all original and complete example with no damage to the iron castings and in fine working order. SIZE: 7″ w x 4-3/4″ d. CONDITION: As stated above, very good to fine condition. The one minor issue being some oxidation/dark spots on flat green base where bear and organ grinder stand.

UNKNOWN LARGE BEEHIVE BANK WITH COMBINATION DOOR.

Unusually large for a still bank measuring approximately 10″ square x 8″ tall, this particular bank can virtually hold a lifetime of savings for a small child. Of unknown manufacture and most likely from the latter part of the 19th century. The castings are quite unique with rope twisting surrounding the edges of the base and a huge beehive dome on top. Most unique in construction and only three castings are involved. The base and beehive are one casting, the combination door (approximately 5″ l x 1-1/2″ h) is another casting and the sub-base and lower front casting comprise the third. As far as production, this must have been quite a feat because upon close examination, it had to be a difficult and arduous task to produce. The coin slot itself is unusually large (1-1/2″) and should accommodate a silver dollar. One begins to wonder if this was a still bank for a child or perhaps served another purpose. Enameled in black with gold highlights, the bank features a double combination lock and a sliding lever to open the front door. Unique and rare only begin to describe this unusual saving device. SIZE: 10″ l x 10″ d x 8″ h. CONDITION: Overall good to very good original finish with uniform wear to painted surfaces. 1-13754 (3,400-3,600) – Lot 3307

KYSER & REX ROLLER SKATING BANK.

Kyser & Rex had a unique ability to create interesting and amusing toys and banks. This particular example features several skaters including a couple that have lost their balance and have fallen down. It also depicts a man and woman who circle about and meet face to face with a gentleman who is giving a floral wreath to the fastest competitor. The coin housing further exemplifies the creativity of Kyser & Rex showing an embossed chandelier, a rack of skates, and a young lady being fitted for a pair of skates. A most interesting and highly desirable mechanical bank, this piece retains a fair amount of its original paint and is in working order. SIZE: 8-3/4″ w x 8-1/2″ d. CONDITION: As stated above, figure lying on his back is a replacement and some possible enhancement to red finish. Otherwise paint appears to be intact and original. 1-13755 (20,000-25,000) – Lot 3308

Elaborately cast mechanical bank by J and E Stevens from the early part of the 20th century inspired by the founding of the Boy Scouts a few years earlier.

CONDITION: Overall good with its original coin trap and showing scattered paint chips. Would benefit from a light cleaning. 1-14273 (2,500-3,500) – Lot 3310

J & E STEVENS PADDY & THE PIG MECHANICAL BANK.

A classic bank depicting Paddy the inebriated Irishman and his pig. Typical of the time period, banks used stereotypes and exaggerated caricatures of various ethnicities. Paddy in a seated position is holding his pig. When the coin is placed on the pig’s snout and the lever pressed, the pig’s front hoof kicks the coin into Paddy’s mouth as he rolls his eyes heavenward. At first glance, the bank appears to be in very fine original condition, but upon closer examination, at some point many years ago, perhaps the father did some touch up and repainting to various areas of the bank. For the most part, black light inspection reveals this touch up was done prior to the 1960s and the paint is even crazed appropriately. However, the bank does have a fair amount of paint enhancement/touch up. SIZE: 7″ l x 8″ h. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14264 (1,000-1,500) – Lot 3311

PAIR OF PRATT & LETCHWORTH HORSE DRAWN PLEASURE VEHICLES.

The first toy is a hansom cab and as typical of Pratt & Letchworth, they paid great attention to detail in both the horse and cab. Circa 1880s-90s, the fine and delicate castings include such accoutrements as side lamps and a rear step to the seated driver. The second toy is a 2-seat open carriage. Also as typical of P&L, they employed a fine and delicate framework under the carriage body. Carriages are enameled in black with yellow pinstripe wheels and various colors highlighting other trim work. In both cases, a caramel colored horse with elaborately painted saddle and trappings further add to the appeal of these toys. Both toys have a seated driver with movable arms (older replacements). SIZE: 12″ & 15″ l, respectively. CONDITION: Overall good in both cases. Hansom cab has a replaced front directional wheel on horse’s front hoof and the horse appears to have some paint touch up to the caramel coloring.

LOT OF 2 WILKINS FIRE TOYS.

The first toy is a 3-horse ladder wagon with integrally cast seated figures and the typical tin and iron back end. A latter Wilkins toy utilized an unusual method of attaching horses to the front end. Literally the mane of the horse has a hook at the rear and they virtually float on the yoke assembly so they give the impression of galloping. The second toy is an early style automotive hook & ladder wagon with an integrally cast seated fireman on the front end. A clockwork mechanism under the rear axle would allow the toy to propel forward. When the toy hit the wall or other obstacle, the ladders would spring up into action. I am sure Mom & Dad loved this toy when it would hit them in the leg. This method was a patented feature for the late Wilkins/early Kingsbury toys. SIZE: 20″ l and 18″ l, respectively. CONDITION: First toy show years of dust and soil that would be enhanced by a thorough cleaning. Missing fire buckets. Overall good to very good. Second toy is very fine original paint.

Oftentimes due to the size this toy has excessive wear especially to the roof where the child would sit. This particular example although not mint, is in remarkable original condition.

LARGE TURNER DUMP TRUCK.

This is the largest of any Turner vehicle produced and perhaps it is quite fair to say that it is massive. Although this pressed steel truck did not utilize pressed steel as heavy as Keystone or Buddy L, it is quite impressive to look at including the extended hood and the C-cab style of the driver’s area. Simplistic and minimal adornments such as radiator cap and simulated headlights add to the charm of this vehicle. A lever on the driver’s side through a scissor mechanism would allow the bed to rise up and dump its load. Formerly owned by Lillian Gottschalk many years ago. There is a certain charm about this truck, somewhat simple when compared to the Buddy L trucks of the same period. SIZE: 30″ l. CONDITION: Overall paint condition is good plus with paint loss to top of engine compartment. Tailgate on bed appears to be an older replacement. However, it is well done and matches the vehicle nicely. 1-13709 (400-800) – Lot 3391

KELMET “BIG BOY” AERIAL LADDER TRUCK.

Over the years, Kelmet produced a variety of interesting pressed steel vehicles. This toy has a great presence and wonderful action. By means of a crank and a scissor type operation, the center ladder extends upwards. And through the use of another crank the ladder can extend even further. Additional wooden ladders are kept on the ladder butterflies. Truck is somewhat dusty and would benefit from a light cleaning to bring out the vibrant color.

LATE 19TH CENTURY EARLY 20TH CENTURY CLOCKWORK BOAT.

Of unknown manufacture but more than likely produced by some small firm as it is too well executed to be a homemade toy. Constructed mostly of wood with vibrant original painting (some alligatoring to finish) having a very large and somewhat complicated wind up motor within its hull to activate the 4 bladed propeller. The hull for the most part is one large piece of wood, which has been shaped and hollowed out, containing the clockwork motor. The cabins on the deck for the most part are painted wood with the exception of the pilot house which is painted tin and a painted tin structure covering the motor. More than likely it had two wood masts which are presently missing. It has an adjustable front rudder on the bow, which is a bit of an oddity and lacking rudder at stern. A very interesting and unique boat that has a certain appeal, especially due to its overall originality. Clockwork mechanism is untested but appears complete and functional? SIZE: 29″ l.
