Elastolin Hausser Burg Aufbau Medival Knights Castle W/base & Box - Germany 40's:
This castle was in storage for many, many years. It is by Hausser and made in Germany. I believe the same company as Elastolin. It is the Burg (Aufbau) Castle #9745. It comes in its original box that measures 22 3/4" x 14 1/2" x 6 1/4". The box is in poor to fair condition with a missing side part, tears and wear. Top art work still displays nicely. The castle appears complete with incredible realistic detail. The castle is not perfect. It has a broken corner piece at the top of the tallest building (as shown). I did not glue it back into place to allow the higher buyer to do it with more accuracy. One corner tower has a few of the tabs at the top broken off. One chain on the draw bridge needs to be replaced. One red roof piece has a piece missing at one end. 2 of the standing rails has broken tabs or end cracks. There is also a center entrance on one wall side. Not sure if it came this way or was done by the original owner. The base is in very nice condition measuring 27 1/2" x 30 3/4". The toy will be shipped via FedEx GFround in two boxes. The base will be shipped in a picture box (reason for additional handling cost). I would date this piece from the 1940's or 50's. A museum quality toy. Please note, shipping only to the USA. Alaska and Hawaii, please inquire first for shipping costs.
