Early American Tin Dog on Wheels, c.1875
A lovely midsize American tin dog ( 8" x 5" )He has a replaced set of wheels, the rest is all original including the red paint around the mouth. The tinwork is quite highly defined and shows a very skilled early manufacturingprocess. The form and feeling has some similarity to weathervanes of the periodand by all rights should be considered in the genre of American Folk Art like the larger weathervanes. Whatever…an early toy at its best. Buyer pays $15 for priority shipping. Will ship internationally, minimum of $40 or postage to be determined. Accepting PayPal.
