For Sale is a Mint Comic Character Henry & Brother by Carl Anderson Celluloid Toy made in Japan in 1934 and includes the original box. The celluloid figures are mounted on individual wheeled tin bases.Henry's base has the wind-up mechanism with its dedicated key and as he rolls forward, he pulls his brother along. The brother wears a distinctive cap and his head nods as he rolls forward. The wheels are angled in such a way that they go in a circle. The windup mechanism works as it should. The celluloid figures are in excellent original condition.
My example of this Henry and his brother celluloid windup is in excellent, near mint, original condition with no breaks, restorations, repairs, or touch ups. This piece shows the usual patina, dust, and wear that are to be expected from age and display and Henry has a blue mark on his bottom. The original box is also included and is also in very good condition but two corners are torn, see pictures. Henry is approximately 5.75" High and his brother is 4.50" High.
View the photos to further determine quality and condition. Henry has a sticker on his right knee that says PASSED F.
A brief history of the character Henry by Carl Anderson. Henry was a comic strip created in 1932 by Carl Thomas Anderson. The title character is a young bald boy who is mute and sometimes drawn minus a mouth. With the exception of a few early episodes, the comic strip character communicates only through pantomime, a situation which changed when Henry moved into comic books. The Saturday Evening Post was the first publication to feature Henry, a series which began when Anderson was 67 years old.
The series of cartoons continued in that magazine for two years in various formats of single panel, multiple panels or two panels.
