Rare - 1900's Fernand Martin "bamboula" Black Tin Wind Up Toy France W/ Box For Sale
Here's a truly rare find - This toy was made by the French manufacturer "Fernand Martin" in the early 1900's. It is called "Bamboula" and represents a young black boy doing some type of dance. It works well - when wound, the toy vibrates and the arms go up and down as if he were dancing. He also comes with the box which shows that it was No 179 and has the F.M. logo. The box does have some staining and a couple of repairs, including one small edge of the bottom of the box seeming to have been fixed or replaced with another piece of cardboard a long time ago. The toy itself is in very good condition but a little dirty and a few moth holes on the back of the shirt. The toy measures about 7.5 inches tall and the box is about 8 inches tall.
I will ship this toy anywhere worldwide but only fully insured which buyer pays for. Serious buyers only please - if you have less than 10 positive response, then please email me before you offer as I have had bad experiences in the past and will cancel your offers if you do not. Also, please wait for me to tell you how much shipping and insurance will cost as the calculator doesn't always work. Thanks much.
