Vintage Black Americana Tin Toy Clicker Bellboy Made In Germany:
Clicker toy made in Germany of painted tin. I think the character is a bell boy. This small clicker shows its age but has little wear. The paint is not glossy but there is no paint loss. There does not appear to be a dot pattern.This was found in a jumbled drawer of pens, saved string, bills from the 1930s, a few marbles, a couple bits of broken things probably intended for "saving", and a few other interesting vintage items. Contents of the drawer could easily have been dumped into the trash as we cleaned this farmhouse out....so glad it was not. There is a small dent, and a 1/8" horizontal split on the right side at the neckline. It is a little dirty; I leave the degree and method of cleaning to you.
A good example of an African character lending itself to toy design, condition suitable for the toy collector and the collector of Black Americana. Measures just 1-7/8" x 3/4" wide.Thank you for looking at this historic lot, and for offerding. papermoon
