If you are a bit rusty on history we will refresh- Wilbur and Orville Wright were American inventors and pioneers of aviation. In 1903 the Wright brothers achieved the first powered, sustained and controlled airplane flight; they surpassed their own milestone two years later when they built and flew the first fully practical airplane.
Our toy find is a rare and beautiful toy made by Fischer Toys of Germany. Our attribution is 95% certain, but there was not a catalog in our collection to finalize it. Wright….to us if you have a catalog and please share!
The toy is hand painted in a luscious cream and has an expertly hand painted pilot and precision German engine. Wind it up, and then it spins, buy design, on a lead weight counterbalanced stand in circles. Later we will share it on a stand. One can see the hook atop the aircraft.
For now, enjoy the photos of a splendid touchtone to world aviation history.
