Mechanical Horse "invictus" Tin Clockwork / No Marklin Bing Carette Gunthermann For Sale
This is a wonderful tinplate windup trotting horse toy made by STGMA of Italy in the 1920s - known as "INVICTUS". In playworn condition (as pictured). I believe that many years ago the original paint has been overlayed with an old clear-coat for protection. It is in as found condition. The clockwork mechanism winds and works well although no key is included in this sale. All four legs move back and forth and also have a joint at the knee that makes for a very realistic trotting movement. The base is wooden and measures approximately 8" across. The horse itself measures a little over 7" long and stands approximately 7" tall. The hair on the horse (main and tail) is worn and thinning. Two tin connecting tabs are missing on the nameplate. The stand measures approximately 16" tall. The horse is also missing one ear. The wire that connects and holds the horse upright also has been repaired. With all of that said, this sale starts at $9.95 and the winning buyer will determine the final price. Winning buyer to pay shipping and insurance for full valued amount. This sale will only ship to locations in the USA - North America. Payment by PayPal only. Thanks for looking and Happy offerding! This sale is a final sale so please ask any questions prior to offerding. Please take a look at my other sales. If you enjoy toy boats such as the early German dreadnaught makers Marklin Bing and Carette please pickup a copy of TOY BOATS by Robert Forbes or "The Allure of Toy Ships" by Dick Claus. In the book you’ll see the Orkin Craft battleship and Radiguet ocean liner plus Fleischmann tinplate submarine with clockwork mechanism. Also pictured are Weeden Bliss and Falk tin windup boats from the early 1900s. Don’t forget JEP Ives and Bliss. They were also very prominent as was George Brown. Ernst Plank and Arnold also made gunboat s of superb quality some with live steam and some with windup propulsion. Whatever your interest, this is a great place to start.
