Just back from an incredible international buying excursion, I will be listing some great items of jewelry and collectibles over the upcoming weeks (and months). I was lucky enough to acquire some terrific and diverse items sure to appeal to anyone wishing to expand their personal collections!
What a wonderful little vintage pulltoy! Found at a quaint market in Holland last month, this wooden piece measures about 7" long and appears to have some age, though I am unsure if it's 1940s or 1960s.
The piece is assembled of painted wood pieces with a bell on top, red wooden wheels, green pieces on top, and a natural natural wooden body. A small metal manufacturer's emblem is on the end stating the following: "MADE IN HOLLAND SIO (or SID)". Any information on this company would be welcomed.
In played in condition, this piece shows some minor fading and surface rust, but it is not detracting at all and only serves to add charm and character to this delightful vintage piece. The metal nails are oxidized and somewhat primitive, again, making this even more charming and desireable. It appears to be original (though the string is certainly replaced) and free of damage or repair. A true European memento, this is offered with no reserve! GOOD LUCK and thanks for bidding!
