Vintage Rare Miyazawa MSK Tin Lithographed Friction Steamship Warship Convertible Vessel Ocean Liner Boat Toy with Box Japan for Sale
Vintage Rare Miyazawa MSK Tin Lithographed Friction Steamship Warship Convertible Vessel Ocean Liner Boat Toy with Box Japan
This tin lithographed “Friction Convertible Vessel” that converts from a steamship to a warship with a flick of a lever was manufactured by Miyazawa Model Co./Miyazawa Mokei Co. Ltd., of Japan.
This convertible ocean liner has a friction mechanism that when ran across the floor a few times causes the boat to roll forward. The lever on the back when pushed from one side to the other flips the middle section of the ship to revel the warship hiding as an unassuming steamship. Everything works as it should and it rolls nicely across the floor. The box is original, however, it has been light restored and cleaned due to tears and dust.
Our example of this Miyazawa “Friction Convertible Vessel” is in great original condition with no restorations, repairs, breaks or touch ups. The lithos are in good overall with the usual patina, scratches, scuffs and chips that are seen with age and display. It is approximately 12” long x 2 ¾” at its widest point. We encourage you to examine the photographs to get a better idea of condition and quality.
