Vintage Marx Ballerina Spinning Top Tin Toy WORKS! Toys Ballerina Spinning Top Tin Toy.
In Very Good Condition considering her age (between 76 85 years old). She has bright paint and litho showing scratches from play wear. I have tested the mechanical spinning mechanism and found it to be in good working order. The original long metal key is included and in very good condition- it slides into one side of her skirt and exits the other. Teeth on one side of the key wind up the top when you pull it back out.This is a really cool toy, particularly if you are a collector of ballet memorabilia or MARX tin toys. Overall a very unique piece that's sure to entertain adults and children alike. Measures a total length of approx 5 3/4" The small of her back has Maker's Mark "MARX TOYS, " "PATENT PENDING, " and "MADE IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NEW YORK NY. Marx logo on the back of the toy is crimped so it's difficult to read, this is a unique and interesting manufacturing defect, not damage. Pictures are for your inspection. Would make a great addition to any toy collection.
