For your consideration is this original vintage J Loefler of Germany tin windup carnival toy. This fantastic toy functions like a car lift, where the bar swings around, grabs the car, brings it back up to the top, and the car travels down the ramp. The 3 plastic figures on the car also spin as it travels down the ramp.
The box is marked JH in a clover, which is the symbol for Loefler of Germany. Believe this toy dates to the 1960s.
The original colorful box shows the carnival barker speaking to the crowd, and shows cars in action down the ramp. The box has some edge wear, a few small pieces of missing cardboard, and some tears/creases.
Overall bright color and a great display piece when you put it next to the toy. The box measures 10" by 5.75" by 4.25.The original toy is made of tin lithography and features a windup mechanism activated by a key. The key is included and the windup works well. Could use some oil to make it smoother but I will leave that to the new owner.
Everything works just as it should. The toy is in VG condition with some scuffs, scattered wear, and minor scratches. Overall great color and just average wear.Really a fantastic display piece and will look great on your shelf. The toy measures 11" by 10" by 4.5 when set up. Dont miss out on this one!
