Item Description
4.25x11x6" tall. Early toy c. 1931 distributed by Borgfeldt. Toy features a pair of 4" tall wood figures of Mickey and Minnie, each complete w/string tail. They are attached to a tin litho platform base w/wood wheels. The top of this platform features choice circus scene in early color scheme w/Mickey having blush cheeks and wearing green pants. He is depicted as an animal trainer while Minnie balances atop a ball. Between them is Wienie, a dachsund which appeared in several early shorts including Plane Crazy. Wienie is depicted stretched into a loop through which a tiger leaps. As toy moves forward, the figures do somersaults. Toy is missing the bellows that produced a squeaking sound, this was originally attached to the underside of the base, so this in no way affects its appearance for display. The figures show only tiny traces of wear, VF/Exc. The base has typical small trace of paint wear mostly to extreme edges. There are also some scattered tiny paint nicks and scratches but appearance remains totally bright and glossy with superb color. Base is Fine. This classic and early toy is one of the nicest distributed by Borgfeldt and has always been a favorite of ours. This is only the 3rd we have been able to offer in our 40 years. From the Deak Stagemyer Collection.
