The Dancing Man c.1930

A fantastic and rare 1930s toy of a dancing man (National Microphone Dancer), the base of the toy shows instructions of how the toy used to work. This toy would have originally been battery operated however we have not tested it in its current state and is currently only used for decorative purposes. All the limbs are articulated with a carved wooden head and moving mouth when he would have originally danced, the arms are made from card. Still with all its original paint and untouched in form, a truly wonderful object with loads of fun. Recently uncovered in a private collection of a toy collector in London.
