EARLY FIRE ENGINE / LADDER TRUCK. 4.5 inch / 11.5 cm. THINK IT'S MADE BY GEORG FISCHER....... WAY BACK IN 1930's. TINPLATE CONSTRUCTION WITH LITHO PRINTNG.
HAS RETAINED ATTRACTIVE COLOUR (red so often fades badly). INTERNAL CLOCKWORK / WIND UP MECHANISM..... Comes with key and works well.
VERY NICE FIRE CREW, DRESSED IN PERIOD UNIFORMS. LITTLE LADDER STILL RAISES & LOWERS, USING REAR HANDLE BAR. FIRE TRUCK RETAINS ITS STEERING WHEEL AND CABIN BELL.
NOW OVER 80 YEARS OLD, IT STILL DISPLAYS NICE... WITH SOME EXPECTED NATURAL PLAY WEAR & AGEING, MOSTLY TO LEFT SIDE... WITH LITTLE SCUFFS, LITHO SPIDERING, SURFACE MARKS, OXIDE SPOTTING ETC.. CHROME IS STILL MOSTLY BRIGHT. NOT PAINTED OR TOUCHED UP.
(please see all images for condition). WITH A CAREFUL WINDING OF THE MECHANISM, THE FIRE TRUCK DRIVES ALONG NICELY. THIS IS A VINTAGE, ALMOST ANTIQUE TOY......
