1939 Marx - Mortimer Snerd Tin Wind Up Toy. A great-working wind up tin toy from Marx, with colorful lithographed artwork that you would expect from this well-known toy maker. This is whimsical wind-up toy depicting the comical Edgar Bergen ventriloquist dummy "Mortimer Snerd" -- a well known character who often appeared along side Bergen's main dummy Charlie McCarthy. The wind up mechanism works well, and sends Snerd tottering along on oversized feet.
His hat jangles on his head as he moves. In the artwork on his back, a note is "pinned" to suit that reads Meet my friend - Mortimer Snerd - Signed, Charlie McCarthy. A wonderful, whimsical original tin toy that you will be proud to have in your collection. A very nice addition to your collection.
