Tin Windup 1940's? Tricycle With Little Boy Driver Works Great Occupied Japan? For Sale

Tin Windup 1940's? Tricycle With Little Boy Driver Works Great Occupied Japan?

I'm selling a beautiful small tin and celluloid tricycle windup toy made in Japan. The sale also includes a partial box, I am pretty sure it is not the right box for the toy, but they look good together. The tricycle measures 4 1/2 inches or 12 centimeters long and it stands 4 inches or 10 centimeters high. The box measures 4 1/2 inches long as well. I think it is complete and original but this is an area of Japanese toys that I do not know much about. I am not sure if it is Occupied Japan or prewar Japanese or if it is from the 1950's. I was not able to find the identity of the manufacturers mark on the back of the boy, if anyone has any information to share I will be happy to pass it on. The windup works very well; when wound, the bell rings and the tricycle travels in a circle. It is in very good condition. the tin is very nice and the wheels are quite beautiful. The celluloid appears to be pretty perfect although you can see a little separation between the torso and the arms. The hands tend to slide off the handles of the tricycle; it looks like the end of the handlebar could be bent a little to hold the hands in place better but I will leave that to the new owner. I had the bottom of the box at one time but seem to have misplaced it. I will try to find it over the course of the week and will add a photo of it to the sale if I can find it. This is delightful tin and celluloid toy in excellent condition.
Questions are welcome and I will be happy to provide additional photos. Shipping will be 7.50 in the U.S.; overseas shipping will vary by country and method of shipping. I am always happy to combine shipping. Paypal is preferred for payment and within 3 days of end of sale, please. Thanks!

********I found the rest of the box. It is somewhat warped and there is a rip in one side but overall it is very sturdy and the cardboard itself is in very good condition. *******
