Vintage Schuco Clockwork Mouse Toy. This sweet Schuco mouse toy features a larger mouse holding a smaller mouse by his arms. It has a key-wind clockwork mechanism.We believe that the larger mouse is supposed to swing the smaller mouse round, but although the clockwork mechanism winds the figure makes a toddling motion only and the arms don't move, so the mechanism is in need of some repair. The larger mouse has'Schuco Patent Made in Germany' moulded into the feet. We would estimate it to date from around the 1930s.
Condition: Overall in fair condition only, with some playwear and damage consistent with age and use. There is some grubbiness, staining and discolouration and some wear and holing to the felt parts, primarily to the larger mouse's ears and his red shorts. There is some rusting and corrosion and the key is rusted. The item "Vintage Schuco Tin-Plate Clockwork Wind-Up Mouse Toy German Needs Some TLC" is in sale since Thursday, April 25, 2019.
