Old Tin Toys Did Amazing Things

By Anne Gilbert

Whenever an sale catalog containing old tin toys comes to my mailbox, I can hardly wait to check out what tricks they could perform. The James Julia November 20 catalog didn’t disappoint me. Those offered were late 19th to early 20th century. Among them was a Lehman Masuyama wind-up with a coolie pushing a rickshaw with an Oriental woman. When wound, the coolie’s feet shuffle, the umbrella twirls and the woman fans herself. Another has a warrior holding a club in each hand. When wound, he does summersaults.

These days with prices of sometimes $6,000, these are toys for adults.
