Wilhelm Krauss (W.K.) Tin Lithographed Windup “Flying Carousel” Airplane Merry-go-round with Battery Operated Lights
This is an adorable tin, lithographed, wind up “Flying Carousel” Airplane Merry-go-round with battery-operated lights that was manufactured by Wilhelm Krauss (W.K) of Nuremberg, Germany. A similar earlier steam-powered version of this toy can be found in Morton A. Hirschberg’s Steam Toys: A Symphony in Motion.
When wound with its dedicated key this working carousel spins around and the airplanes lift into the air to take flight. The tin Fokker-style airplanes have plastic multi-colored propellers. The multi-colored light bulbs are untested.
