1932 Chein Popeye Shadow Boxer. Nice Old Popeye Windup Toy. 7" Tall and 2 1/2" Wide. The Popeye Shadow Boxer is from the early 1930s.
This example is in wonderful working condition. There is some natural toning to the litho which makes it wonderful for display in the collection. A very elusive toy to acquire in beautiful condition, like this one. This may be the investment you are looking for.
I have been dealing Popeye toys for 30+ years. From my private collection, a beautiful Chein Popeye Shadow Boxer with wonderful original color and presentation. The Chein company was founded by Julius Chein in New Your City in 1903.
In 1926 Julius was killed in a horse-riding accident in New Yorks Central Park. Popeyes intension here is to simulate the punching action just as he did in many of the Segar cartoons from the 1930s. The winding shaft is located just behind the right elbow of Popeye.
This Chein Popeye Shadow Boxer is quite scarce and only shows up rarely in this nice original condition. Yes, the toy is 88 years old and the litho/color is beautiful. Just an outstanding example of a great early Popeye toy. One of the most elusive Popeye toys ever made by an American Toy Company. In my opinion this is one of the most difficult to find J.
Chein Toys in excellent clean, not corroded/rusty condition. Samples available for sale do not show up very often. Boxes for 1930's toys are scarce as well.
Chein used slotted figures made for the Bag Puncher toys and packaged them as Shadow Boxers. To the best of my knowledge there should not be slots between the feet on the front or back on a Shadow Boxer. Check out the pictures and please ask questions if needed prior to the end of the sale. Spring and geared mechanism works as it should. The history of Chein Toys and information on this toy may be viewed in my listed educational reference manual.Buyers outside the US need to know the import costs to their country.
