Marx ca. 1930’s Tin Lithographed Windup “Butter & Egg Man” with Box
We have for you this ca. 1930’s tin, lithographed, windup “Butter & Egg Man” with box that was manufactured by Louis Marx & Company of New York City, New York.
This is a fun and colorful toy. This toy is very challenging to find boxed. It was a later Marx tin toy that re-utilized the Joe Penner tin pressing, but with, arguably, a better lithograph. Our polished and glossy yellow salesman is pushing butter and eggs to customers. The windup works well and the tin is near new with extremely minor scratching, typical Marx assembly marks, and then glossy outside. The box is in very good condition as shown with some flap wear.
This piece is in great all original condition with no breaks, restorations, repairs, or touch-ups. This piece shows the usual patina, fading, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, missing accessories, and wear that are to be expected from age and play. This is approximately 7 ¾” H. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.
