German Tin Lithographed Airplane Penny Toy with Hangar *SOLD*
German Tin Lithographed Airplane Penny Toy with Hangar
Our penny toy here is unusual in that it comes with its own accessory. This is a Spirit of St. Louis style fixed upper wing propeller aircraft with a unique hangar. The back of the hangar says “Made in Germany.” The airplane is stamped “Germany” on the left side under the wing. We believe this to be attributed to Georg Fischer, but we were unable to come to any definitive conclusions on this.
The hangar has a repeating plane motif on the roof. We haven’t seen another like it, as it is more of a fabric style of look.
Condition is good but used. There is thin paint on the hangar roof and requisite small scratches from shelf wear. Overall it is a very nice original toy. The airplane is approximately 3 3/4″ L x 2 3/4″ W and the hangar is 5″ L x 4″ W.
