RARE Chein Tin Lithographed Windup Train Toy for Sale
RARE Chein Tin Lithographed Windup Train Toy
This is a tough to to find in great condition! It is a humble Chein Toy, likely from the mid 1920’s and quite colorful.
The windup works well and it is all original. The lithograph is still quite bright.
This is an early and primitive Chein ca 1920, so it puts the condition in perspective– It turned 100!
We have enjoyed it in our shop for quite some time, & it is time to adopt it out!
