Antique Indian Hand Made Copper Airplane India Folk Art Teens 20s Tin Toy Plane For Sale
Welcome! Today we are thrilled to bring you this very rare antique in the form of a WWI era biplane. This toy was hand built in the late teens or early 1920s in India, and is made of copper, pigment, and love. The details of this aeroplane are wonderfully crisp and minute, and would have required much in the way of skill and craftsmanship. We obtained this and some other toys from an estate in India offered from the grandson of a wealthy businessman there. This hand-formed copper plane consists of multiple parts all secured with rough tabs (à la Japanese toys of the '50s) and includes such details as a pressed gun turret, windows, and highly worked engine coiling. The wheels of this particular airplane are crudely sand cast but add much in the way of charm with there primitive alloy make up. The toy was also hand-painted and retains much of its colorful original finish. This is an absolutely beautiful artifact, and should command a highly respected place in any related collection.
Measures: 6½ x 6½ x 4 inches
