Manufacturer: France Toys

Collectible antique toy soldier type of toy of what we believe to be a male train conductor or railroad conductor or other similar train worker. He is in the black uniform or suit and black hat or cap often seen for train conductors. What is most important to note about him is the condition of one of his arms. He must have originally been made to have one movable arm, with the molded arm having at the shoulder end a circular piece with a hole in the middle to fit onto a tiny rod or knob so that it could be moved back and forth. At some point the metal forming the open circle must have broken so that the arm could no longer fit onto or stay on the rod. The arm piece is still here, but someone has done a "rough repair," attaching it to the body via a copper colored wire that is twisted around the upper arm and then looped around the man's neck. The arm is definitely attached, will not fall off and can be moved slightly, but it is certainly not as originally made. Someone good with metal and solder could perhaps repair the circular portion so that the arm could function and fit properly again, but we are selling this as is/as found. Also, the conductor is carrying some sort of small rod in the hand of this arm. We can't tell for certain if the end of this rod is as was originally made or has been broken off, as if originally he was carrying something longer in size. Perhaps the rod is/was meant to be a flashlight or a ticket punch (like conductors have on trains), either at the current size or originally bigger.

This piece was made in France with the word "France" appearing twice on the underside of the base in both raised and impressed letters. We can also see the letters "DE" and part of a "P" which we believe are part of the french word "depose" which means registered (as in a copyrighted or registered design). We don't know if it was originally sold as a figure to be used with a train set or a village display (such as a Christmas village or Christmas scene display) or as part of some other old toy set or scene. He is definitely an old, antique or vintage piece, although we don't know his exact age (we are not toy dealers and just describe what we see). He is definitely made of a cast metal which we believe could be lead from similar pieces we've handled and seen. As such, we will only sell this piece to adult collectors, it should be handled with care and should not given to children to play with due to concerns with lead exposure.

The man stands about 2 1/4 inches tall, 7/8 inch wide and about 1/2 inch in depth at the base. There is a tiny incomplete hole on the top tip of his hat with a raised bump nearby which we believe was made in manufacture, from separating him from the mold in which he was made. We have provided 7 images to try and show from all sides and details for condition purposes, with the figure also shown with a quarter for size comparison. Please note that the white "hot spots" are reflections from the camera lighting. This lighting makes his coloring seem a bit lighter & brighter than it is in person.

Beyond his arm issue, he shows other age and wear. His chin has a tiny flat circular spot which may be from being worn or chipped here, and a tiny worn spot on his nose. There is paint wear, paint chipping/flaking on his face, hands, hat, and body/clothing with the gray base metal showing through in spots. The bright camera lighting may "bland out" some of the paint wear making some of it hard to see, but it is there (a "rough" guess would be that 75%+ of his paint is still there). The paint looks original to us, he does not appear to have been repainted. There are indented spots and a small curved line crack on the underside base on which he stands as well as white paint or dirt.

Usable within a collectors group of small vintage toy figures. Could be incorporated into an older train set or diorama or other display dealing with transportation or American life in general.

Please note that we have many other lead toys listed separately for sale. If you wish to purchase more than one, please e-mail us before placing the order since the shipping information has been inputted for a purchase of just one and will not calculate the savings you would get when purchasing more than one shipped together in the same package (we will need to handle this for you).
