The S.G. Gunthermann Company of Nuremberg, Germany was founded by Sifried Gunthermann in 1877. The Company began producing tinplate mechanical vehicles in 1898 as well as a number of comic and character wind-ups in the early 1900s. When the founder died in 1890, his widow married Adolph Weigel. Beginning ion 1890 the Toys produced carried a maker's mark in the form of a shield inside circle with the initials "A.S.G.W.". Wiegels initials were removed following his death in 1919.


This wonderful, Gunthermann Clockwork Train Engine displays in very good condition. The tin lithographed surface is well preserved with only light wear and a few small spots of touch-up. The Engine lacks one of the two headlamps and the cap to the smoke stack. The drive shafts are present but detached from the drive wheels and the attachments are in need of repair and/or replacement. The Wind-up / clockwork mechanism is present but is not in working order and is in need of repair. Although the Engine displays very nicely, it is in need of repair and some restoration as described above.
