Ice Cream Vendor ca 1910 - Issmayer Germany - EXT. RARE

Please SCROLL DOWN for
larger, more detailed photos
This very attractive ice cream vendor and cart was made by Johann Issmayer of Nuremberg sometime around 1910 and measures approximately 7 inches in length. Aside from the hand-painted wheels, the toy is fully lithographed, with generous amount of ornamentation to the cart and a richly luminescent finish on the figure. Factory touch-ups were a necessity in much of early lithography, as is faintly seen with the ones found on the top of the hat and the back seam of the coat, including some parts of the large red wheels.

The top of the ice cream wagon shows a small hole on each end which probably held a wire support frame with possibly an "Ice Cream" or "Ices" sign attached to it. (The wire bracket seen in the photo near the end is a recent addition that balances the toy out quite nicely and is completely removable). The edge of one cart wheel shows a sharp crease, made during the factory pressing, but it is not a break. The back end of the cart has two empty slots that once supported a tiny bell hidden inside and which produced a faint ring as the toy moved along.

Much like with most walking toys by Lehmann, the leg mechanisms were very delicate and soon became loose and wobbly. This toy is no exception, as the legs 'want' to go through a stepping motion, but after one or two step, they simply slide.The figure tends to lean to one side (depending on the position of the legs), but can be posed to remain straight, as in the photos. (If need be, much of these small issues could be remedied by an experienced restorer). Overall, the cosmetic condition of this fragile toy is excellent, as you can easily judge from the photographs.

The two reference photos near the end shows another toy by Issmayer of 'boy pulling girl inside goat cart' which I sold several years ago and which clearly shows the figure to be from the same pressing, but just lithographed differently. Included also are a couple of 1900-1910 vintage photos (reference only) of similar ice cream seller's carts, with one that reads "Gefrorenes" meaning "frozen" in German.

This is an extremely rare toy by one of the great German toy makers and depicts an aspect of early twentieth century city street life, as did many of the toys made by Fernand Martin during the same period. This is also one of the very few Ice Cream related tin toys produced during that era.
