Unusual & Genuine Vintage Tin Litho Wind up Toy 'Circus theme with Trains' ~ Circa 1930s ~
Description: This is a very sweet little wind up litho toy. The theme is the circus and if working, two little trains would travel in a circle, visiting the children's station and going through a tunnel. Numerous scenes of circus activities; children riding an elephant, carousel, boat rides, ferris wheel ride, steam train ride and much is fair, this sweet little toy has age to it, with signs of wear on its surface. There is some rub off to the 'hill' part and some of the surface has tiny bubbling to it. The key won't move and there is another small metal stick near key which I don't know what its purpose was/is, possibly missing an attachment. Both little trains are present but not marked by a maker's name. It could do with a gentle clean, and be restored to its former glory. Likewise it will make a great display as it is.Please see pictures for further details. Measurements: Height: 4cm/1.5" Width: 14cm/5.5", Depth: 14cm/5.5"

Please note Royal Mail have significantly increased their prices (unfortunately!) and the way they calculate package sizes so even small packages cost the same as bigger ones. So I have had to re-jig postage costs to try and keep costs down, primarily going from 1st class postage to 2nd class so items take longer to get to you but it costs less to do so. You do not pay for packaging, just the cost of postage. The tracking number will be supplied to you when your item is despatched. Bigger items are sent via independent courier firms such as interparcel.com and they have also raised their prices - again you only pay for the courier costs - not packaging which are always recycled wherever possible. If you are in doubt, I am happy to forward a copy of the courier invoice for your purchase, so you can double check.You will also receive a tracking number so you will be able to monitor your items progress during despatch. Pick up is always welcome if you are near by - or if possible, I will deliver to your door for free if you are very local - or for a small fee to cover petrol costs not so close - all of which is prearranged between myself and the buyer. Free (or otherwise) delivery is not guaranteed unless we have prearranged it prior to sale ending. All my items are vintage and so as such, they all bear signs of age. Old is gold as they say. If you are looking for pristine, brand new products - then my items are not for you. Vintage seeking buyers are an intelligent lot and are aware of the value and charm of items from bygone days.So welcome to my style="text-decoration:none"
