Vintage Toys ~ 1920s

Oh I have lots of goodies to "show and tell" today. A great group of vintage 1920's toys to move along. I hope to have them all listed this weekend. This tin lithograph tea set is so sweet. A tray with four matching cups and saucers. The teddy bear theme should do well with the Teddy Collectors.



I will likely sell this luncheon lace set as well. The set includes a large centerpiece doily or topper with matching place-mats and coasters.




This 1920's American Clown is adorable. He is musical and still plays sweet music when you gently squeeze his tummy. His colourful red and green mohair is still bright and vibrant. He looks a bit sad here though . . . so I will try and take some happier photos of him!



This Schuco Bird is sweet too ~ they are called "peck peck" birds . . . because they peck the ground when they are wound up (his wind-up key is on the far side).

The mohair Donkey is from the same Estate. I couldn't find him in my Toy Books but I think it is safe to say he is also from the 1920's (same as his furry friends). He is straw filled with glass eyes. Likely from Europe.



This little guy is quite rare . . . a 1928 Spotty Dog. He was only made by Steiff for one year. He is pretty cute! He retains his original bow, bell and Steiff Button. His soft white mohair is clean and full.

This boxed puzzle is also from Germany ~ 1920s. It has six different fairytale pictures on the wooden blocks.



Well . . . I had better get working on my descriptions and scheduled postings.
Have a great weekend !!!
