Vintage 1950's Mardi Gras King Rex Float Tin Toy Philip J Walmsley Japan:
This sale is for a Vintage 1950's MARDI GRAS KING REX FLOAT Tin Toy, made in Japan for Philip J. Walmsley!! This is in excellent condition! It is approx. 5 x 2 x 5 inches. I am selling this for a friend, who bought 3 of these around 1969 - 1970 from a drug store in New Orleans - he said the store owner was trying to get rid of them because they were on the shelf for many years. There is no date on the toy, but in my research it was listed as mid 20th century, and the wheels on the bottom are very similar to the tractor toys of the 1950's. The little guys up front are still pegged in, but one of the guys is a little looser - it looks like one of the pegs on the feet is a little shorter. Please see pictures for any questions. I combine shipping for multiple items.
