My Friend Celluloid Windup Acrobat “Lola the Lady Marvel” Japanese Toy for Sale
My Friend Celluloid Windup Acrobat “Lola the Lady Marvel” Japanese Toy
We have for you a toy that you won’t see very often. This is a celluloid, windup, acrobat that was manufactured by My Friend of Japan.
We do not know much about this brand and we have only had one other item manufactured by My Friend, but we do know at some point Kuramochi Shoten\Kuramochi & Co., Ltd. (CK) of Japan manufactured one similar to this called “Lola: The Lady Marvel” but we have been unable to find any like her made by My Friend and we don’t know anything about the company. Any information would be gladly accepted.
When wound with her key (not original) this lovely lady flips around the bar doing acrobatics. The clockwork mechanism works as it should. We did not notice any cracks or dents in the celluloid. On her back is marked “My Friend” and the Japanese inspection stamp is still on her left thigh.
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 6” L x 5” W x 11” H. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.
