Antique Tin Wind Up Railroad Car Toy, Mutt & Jeff

$595

About the Item

This cute little toy was made at the height of the character collectible toys, the 1930's. Lithographed on tin are the images of the famous comic strip characters, Mutt & Jeff. Just wind it up, lift up the lever, and the wheels start spinning. Can be used on railroad, hence the indentations in the middle of the wheels, or just on any hard flat surface. When wound up the characters pump away moving the car. A very neat little antique toy in working condition.
