Vintage 1920s Strauss Boob McNutt Wind Up. Rare piece of Strauss's classic tin litho clockwork toy'Boob McNutt complete.
Based on the character created by Rube Goldberg the comic strip was published coast to coast from 1915 to 1934. This particular toy has sun fading and rusty areas. Some paint scratches here and there and where his body moves back and worth rubbing the litho. Strauss manufactured two versions of the toy.One with a flat top hat, and the other with a normal hat. The hair styles and heads were also different. It's a simple enough toy. Hinged at the waist it mechanically moves it's upper body from side to side. Its arms hang down freely and swing to the movement of the torso.
The movement is sufficient enough to make the toy vibrate, or "walk". All parts including arms, hat, are original. Might have a replaced boot or is just missing the label on the bottom. Best of all it works beautifully!This item is in the category "Toys & Hobbies\Vintage & Antique Toys\Wind-up Toys". The seller is "patoysoftimespast" and is located in this country: US.
