Rare wind up toy

THE HOUSE OF ANTIQUES
Mid 20th Century rare wind up drummer toy
We are very proud to offer a rare example of a mid-20th century Chinese metal windup metal drummer toy, in the form of an African street dressed man. After winding the toy up he plays the drum and moves around due to the action and vibrations.
Size in inches approx.: H 10” x W 5” x D 5”
Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form. Aged torn clothing and the wind-up mechanism is temperamental, sometime is works for a few seconds and sometime the spring just snaps over and the figure doesn’t work as a result. There are several old aged worm holes in the rear of the back rest, but these are long gone.

Period: 

1950
