Vintage 1921 Strauss Ham & Sam Minstrel Team Tin Wind-Up Toy Black Americana
Vintage 1921 Strauss Ham & Sam Minstrel Team Tin Wind-Up Toy. The Ferdinand Strauss Corporation, New York 1921. The toy is in great condition considering it is almost 100 years old! Please, look closely at the photographs and don't hesitate to request additional photos if needed. The item has some small scratches and a little corrosion/oxidation where the paint is worn. The top/front edge of the piano has a little corrosion. Also, a little corrosion is present on the back of the piano. The musicians are in good shap as well, but have a little corrosion and some scratches. Please, when looking at the photographs use the magnifier and focus on the joints.
When tested, the mechanism worked. However, with both musicians in place the motor slows to a stop. Without the banjo player in place, the motor worked. The switch worked as well.
The item is 6.5" x 5.5" x 3. Banjoy player is 7.5 tall. Piano player is 5 tall. If you need additional photographs or have questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I'll be happy send more photographs and do whatever I can to help! I'm always happy to help! Thanks for visiting Kelley's Cars, Comics, and Antiques!
