Antique Gbn Bing German Science Battery Op Electric Lab Toy Experiment Rare For Sale
Antique GBN Bing German Science Battery Op Electric Lab Toy Experiment RARE
I took many pictures so please supersize and examine photos closely above. They are being used to describe this item and it's condition.
Below is written details that I feel the photos do not or cannot class="MsoNormal">Here is a very rare Antique GBN Gebrüder Bing Nuremberg Germany Science Battery Op Electric Lab Toy Experiment. If you are collector of early scientific memorabilia, or of Gebrüder Bing items, this is an item you dare not miss. I have looked on many sites to locate an item similar to this, or the other one I have on at this time, and could not find one. Given the label on this item it was produced at the latest in 1923, so it is at least 90 years old, perhaps older. This appears to be all original and in very good condition. It even includes its original labeled batteries, however they do show corrosion. In addition, at some time someone must have lost the original key to the box's lock, so they attached the little hooks, you see in the pictures, to keep the lid in place for carrying (however I recommend this item be carried by supporting the bottom, verses trusting this make shift latch). So, probably needless to say, this box is missing the key. Sadly, since science is not one of my strong points, I am not sure exactly what this item was meant to show or do, in addition I am not sure, since I cannot find another one to compare it to, if it is missing any parts that may have originally came with it. Since the batteries are corroded it does not work in its present condition, however since it is so clean I am sure that it could be made to work with little effort. This item in the box measures 16-1/8" long by 8-3/8" deep by 8" tall.
Bing GBN is best known for their toy trains as well as their steamed powered toy engines, however they did make other items including scientific and educational novelties, such as this one. If you are interested in learning more about the "Bing" company I found Wikipedia a very interesting source of information on them.
This item will be sold to the highest buyer. Thank you for looking and Good Luck. Please go check out the other one I have on for sell at this time.

Terms of Sale
Since nearly 95% of the items that I sell are old, used, or vintage, they are offered in "AS-IS" condition. Since "used" items can have many issues it is many times impossible for me to list, see, or know all the flaws; however I will always try to describe the item to the best of my ability and provide pictures that are representative of the item(s) condition, but if an item is being sold as "used" it is being sold "as is". My descriptions will be as honest and as accurate as possible; but because I'm no expert your comments and corrections are most welcome. Feel free to email me your questions or comments before you offer, I will gladly insert your correction in my listing, or answer your question. All of my merchandise is guaranteed! If you feel an item was misrepresented, you may return the item for a refund, please EMAIL ME FIRST before you return your item. I give refunds on clear, non-disputable misrepresentation that is brought to my attention. For example if I said that an item is not chipped, and it is; OR if I said a product works and it does not. Remember, it is the buyers responsibility to read my description, my item specifics, and view my picture(s) closely before placing a offer. Thank you.
Please honor your offer and I will do my best to provide you with prompt, honest, sincere, and excellent service.
Thank you for viewing my sale. Enjoy your experience!
