European Tin 1956 Convertible, Possibly Soviet Toy for Sale
European Tin 1956 Convertible, Possibly Soviet Toy For Sale
This particular tin toy has eluded us on attribution. At first it reminded us of a French make, but as we looked at the wheels, the maker was more basic. The license plate notes 1956, and then we see a very nice hand painted figure.
We may have a Soviet toy, potentially made somewhere like Czechoslovakia within the 1950’s Soviet Union.
This is speculation, so we would greatly appreciate help on the definitive attribution.
Regardless, we have a rare and hand painted tin toy that looks great next to prewar hand painted tin toys from Germany and France. It has a primitive and hand wrought beauty.
PS As a final thought, this could be from the maker Mitsushima Seisakusho, as seen by the MM on the license plate. The Japanese were known to recycle tin and that could explain the primitive wheels.
