Very Early Airplane Model

$2,200Asking Price


This is the earliest airplane toy model I've ever offered. It has an impressive 30 inch wing span and is 20 inches long. The metal plane parts and stand have the original patina. Note the 3 rubber wheels... the rubber's patina and style are a good indication of this models age. The red areas are lacquered paper and shows some age as well. there are 2 anchor emblems on the wings. It may indicate that it was produced by the Anchor Toy Company.... but I can't say for sure.
