Rare - 1910's Germantin Wind Up Black Toy "rolling Rufus" On Barrel:
Another rare tin wind-up black toy from the 1910's which is marked made in Germany and measures about 7.5 inches tall. You wind the toy up from the bottom under the barrell using a key (I'll include a key that works - not sure if it is the original key). A friend toy collector told me his name is "Rolling Rufus" and that it was only the third one of these he had ever seen in his whole life collecting toys. This toy has fantastic action - when you wind it under the barrel, it rolls along and makes the black boy's legs and arms move a little so that he looks like he is trying to stay afloat on top of the barrel. The condition is at good as it gets for toys from this period.
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.
