Cork Gun Indian old West design from Japan, Possibly KO
Early cork guns like this are a rare treat, as they tended to just fall apart. Our example is likely new old stock but not meant to last.
The tin cork gun from Japan works very well and is still held in place by the original string and cork. Cock the handle back and then pull the trigger to a shooters delight.
The Indian head is a very special design. We’ve seen a few examples of other art, but this design is exceptional and can stand on its own as an art panel.
This size of tin litho gun is exceptionally large and unusual. A ruler and penny are pictured for a comparison.
Condition is very good with tarnishing and aging as shown. Paint and the handles are in excellent condition.
