Fleischmann Cargo Ship Antique Tin Freighter Wind-up Clockwork Toy Boat For Sale
This is a fabulous vintage tin wind-up toy, a Freight Ship
made by Fleischmann! The boat is marked MADE IN US ZONE GERMANY on the smoke stack
and Made in Western Germany on the bottom of the hull. This model is very
difficult to find. Based on only two other sales that I have ever seen in
the past few years, I would place the value between $700 and $1500.00. I have
seen only one on and it went for $700 but it was repainted. This one is original.
The wind-up key is original and the spring mechanism is
sound and works magnificently!! It winds up smoothly and spins the propeller consistency
and freely without any interruption or peculiar noises. There is no evidence of
any use in water.
Please use the Zoom feature by holding the mouse over the imagein my 12 detailed photographs for close-up views. The "Fleischmann"
logo on the Transom Looks spectacular. The tin on the deck of the ship is very
nice and intact. All of the metal clips are still there and have never been
tampered with. The Lifeboat davit arms are secure and adjustable with good
resistance. The cargo hold doors flip open nicely and are secure. The rudder is
still tight and adjustable. There are no
There is some standard wear and tarnishing as I have well depicted in my
photo's, slight warping on the starboard
bow railing, some metal corrosion on the forward deck hatch. There is some crazing on the deck but overall
most of the deck details are nice (see photo's). There is absolutely NO evidence of any paint
touchup or repairs whatsoever! The red
and black paint on the hull is shiny, Above
the waterline there is one black paint
chip on the Port Stern side and hard to see scuff on the Port Bow, including one
black chip on the Starboard bow side. Below the waterline is some minor scraping on
the bow and paint peeling on the propeller. The crinkling on the bottom of the
hull is original and from the manufacturing process.
The two masts, the flag, and the box are not available however the support
posts are in good condition.
This item will be shipped insured, in a 6" x 12" x
15" box and will be bubble wrapped and stabilized securely with packing beads.
