Vintage Wooden Toy Boat Ship Made In Japan By "ito" Company-estate Collection For Sale
Vintage Wooden Toy Boat Ship Made In Japan By "ITO" Company-Estate Collection
HERE FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A WONDERFUL VINTAGE 1940'S ERA WOODEN TOY BOAT MADE IN TOKYO JAPAN WITH A LABEL THAT STATES "ITO MODEL TRADE MARK MADE IN TOKYO JAPAN". "ITO" STANDS FOR INTERNATIONAL TRADE ORGANIZATION AND MADE BATTERY OPERATED WOODEN TOY BOATS POST-WAR FROM THE 1940'S TO EARLY 1960'S. THEY WERE EITHER MADE IN FACTORIES OR BY ACTUAL JAPANESE FAMILIES IN THEIR OWN HOMES-THIS ONE WAS MADE BY THE LATTER BECAUSE THERE IS A NUMBER "15" IN TWO PLACES ON THE BOAT WHICH I HAVE PICTURED THAT INDICATED THE NUMBER THAT WAS ASSIGNED TO THAT FAMILY BY THE COMPANY. THIS WOODEN BOAT HAS TONS OF DETAILS! THE TOP HAS A SILVER METAL LIGHT WITH A CLEAR LENS AND A METAL HORN. THERE IS ANOTHER METAL LIGHT WITH A RED & BLUE LENS AT THE FRONT-ALL OF THE FRONT & TOP METAL RAILINGS ARE PRESENT; THE CURVED METAL & WIRE ANTENNAE WAS GLUED ON BUT HAS FALLEN OFF (SEE PICS) BUT I HAVE THE PIECE WHICH WILL BE EASILY REPAIRED BY THE NEW OWNER. THE PLASTIC WINDSHIELD IS ALSO PRESENT. IT HAS A SINGLE METAL RUDDER AND TWO ENGINE PROPELLERS THAT TURN. THE TOP LIFTS OFF TO REVEAL TWO GREEN PLASTIC TOPS TO THE ENGINES MARKED "ITO"; IT HAS NOT BEEN TESTED WITH BATTERIES AND IS ASSUMED AS NON-OPERATIONAL- SOLD AS A DECORATIVE DISPLAY PIECE ONLY. THIS BEAUTIFUL COLLECTIBLE BOAT MEASURES APPROX. 21 1/2" LONG & 7" HIGH. THERE IS A SMALL DENT ON THE HULL (SEE PIC) THAT DOES NOT PENETRATE, BUT NO OTHER HOLES OR DENTS. ONE WINDOW PIECE IS BROKEN OUT, THERE IS A SMALL WOOD CRACK ON THE SAME SIDE & MARKS WHERE THE LIFE PRESERVER RINGS WERE ONCE MOUNTED WITH GLUE & ARE MISSING. THE DETAIL ON THIS TOY BOAT IS ASTONISHING WITH THE DECK GROOVES IN THE WOOD AND THE COLORS OF BROWN, CREAM, GREEN & ORANGE! THIS WILL BE A FANTASTIC ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION OF VINTAGE TOYS. I AM NOT AN EXPERT AT ALL IN THIS AREA, SO PLEASE ENLARGE ALL PICTURES AND CONSIDER THEM THE MAJOR PART OF THE DESCRIPTION. PLEASE EMAIL ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE PRIOR TO offerDING-GOOD LUCK!
