Antique Marx Metal Toys

Marx Logo Brand
Marx Logo Brand

Louis Marx and Company was an American toy manufacturer in business from 1919 to 1978. Its products were often imprinted with the slogan, “One of the many Marx toys, have you all of them?” The Marx logo was the letters “MAR” in a circle with a large X through it, resembling a railroad crossing sign. As the X sometimes goes unseen, Marx toys were, and are still today, often misidentified as “Mar” toys.

Marx’s toys included tinplate buildings, tin toys, toy soldiers, playsets, toy dinosaurs, mechanical toys, toy guns, action figures, dolls, dollhouses, diecast toy cars, and HO scale and O scale trains. Marx’s less-expensive toys were extremely common in dime stores, and its larger, costlier toys were staples for catalog retailers such as Sears and Montgomery Ward, especially around Christmas.

Lines Bros | Tri-ang Works London

Triang Letter 1955
Triang Letter 1955

Lines Bros Ltd was a British toy manufacturer of the 20th century, operating under the Tri-ang brand name. Lines Bros Ltd, at its peak, was claimed to be the largest toy maker in the world.

The brothers George and Joseph Lines made wooden toys in the Victorian era, their company being G & J Lines Ltd. Joseph was the active partner while George went into farming. Joseph (or Joe) had three sons, who formed Lines Bros Ltd soon after First World War. They were William, Walter and Arthur Lines. Three Lines making a triangle – hence Tri-ang. Arthur’s son, Richard Lines, was largely responsible for the Tri-ang Railways system. At the start of the Second World War, production of children’s toys was deemed non-essential by the British Government.

Triang Lorry
Triang Lorry

The British range of Tri-ang large scale pressed steel vehicles were produced from the early 1930s through until the mid-1970s. To the casual onlooker or collector in the world of old toys, these toys (not models!) are of no great interest, are crude by modern standards and only a few different types are commonly seen. The most common are the red-bonneted tipper lorry, the bonneted Shell tanker, breakdown lorry and the London Transport double decker bus, with a couple of cranes and a few Puff Puff railway engines.

The full selection of pressed steel vehicles including the different types of cranes and trains consisted of over 200 different types. There were actually nine different series of lorries together with a series of buses, cranes and trains. Tri-ang was one of the largest toy producers in the world and their range of toys reflected this.

The nine different ranges of Pressed Steel Toy Lorry were:

  • 1930–1937: Metal lorries
  • 1937–1956: Bedford’s
  • 1948–1957: 200 Series
  • 1955–1960: Diesel Series
  • 1957–1963: 300 Series
  • 1959–1966: Thames Traders
  • 1958–1967: Junior Diesels
  • 1962–1966: Regal Roadsters
  • 1966–1973: Hi-ways

Detail

Antique 1930s era Mickey and Minnie Mouse Playland Celluloid Windup Toy. This great early Disney toy is constructed of a metal frame supporting a tin “candy cane” tube that the celluloid Mickey and Minnie stand upon. Both Mickey and Minnie are standing atop a celluloid ball, as Mickey holds a metal hoop in one hand and Minnie holds a bell. The top of the toy features a cardboard decorated banner with character faces and text that reads: “Mickey and Minnie Mouse Playland; Copyright Walt. Disney Enterprises, LTD. Distributors: Geo. Borgfeldt Corporation, New York”.

They toy itself was made by Kuramochi & Co., LTD (The Japanese Toy Manufacturer) and has their “C.K” diamond trademark on the Original Box Label and the cardboard toy banner as well. The toy was imported/distributed by Borgfeldt in the United States. The original Box has a bright colorful logo atop a beautiful checkerboard pattern. Both of the celluloid balls has a raised “Made in Japan” on the rear sides. Minnie’s ball also retains an original “©Walt Disney Enterprises LTD Japan” sticker. The toy is in great overall working condition, showing some very very light scuffing from play wear, and some barely noticeable oxidation on the frame. When wound, the “candy cane” pipe swings back and forth like a pendulum as Mickey and Minnie move their arms and spin. Minnie’s face is slightly dented inwards (please see photos). Cardboard banner shows some very light creases and some light staining near 1 corner. Original Box is in great condition as well, showing some very light edge wear overall. Buy it now on eBay!

This is a rare Disney toy that would make a fantastic addition to any collection!!

Antique Schuco Metal Toys

Schuco is a German toy maker founded in 1912 by Heinrich Müller and the businessman Heinrich Schreyer in Nuremberg, Germany’s toy capital since early days. The company’s specialty was usually cars and trucks in tin, plastic and diecast. The company went bankrupt in 1976 but was reorganized in 1993 and then totally independent again by 1996. When the company started in 1912, it made unique clockwork tin toys (Johnson 1998, p. 210). Some of these toys were clever in that one would wind an arm or another feature instead of a key. In the 1920s it introduced its famous Pick-Pick bird (over 20 million were made up until the 1960s). A wind-up mouse, a dancing mouse and trotting dog wearing a cape were other popular offerings (King 1986, p. 173). Before World War II there were also a number of ‘gnome’-like wind-up figures and soldiers sometimes called blacksmiths – and done in creative colorful attire.

Masudaya Modern Toys | Japan Toy Maker

Masudaya Modern Toys Logo
Masudaya Modern Toys Logo

Masudaya, also known as Masudaya Modern Toys, is a Japanese toy maker which became known as a leading builder of mechanical and battery operated toys in the post WWII era. Unlike most of their competitors, this company has managed to survive to this day, in part due to their involvement in the early days of the airsoft boom, during the early 1980s. The company was known for essentially creating the “skirmishable” airsoft gun. They were the first to design airsoft guns to be used for combat simulation. Before that, all airsoft guns were essentially for target shooting in your backyard.

Detail

Considered to be one of the “holy grails” of robot collecting, this is the ultra-scarce Modern Toys/Masudaya tin Giant Sonic Robot (aka “Train” robot), manufactured in Japan in the late 1950s and very early 1960s. It is believed to be the last member of the so-called “Gang of Five,” a set of skirted battery-op robots that included Sonic, along with Radicon, Target, Non-Stop and Machine Man. These robots command the top spots in the pantheon of robot collecting, and prices as high as $42,500 have been paid for them individually at auction in recent years.

Detail

The robot stands an impressive 15 inches high, and is complete and all-original. There are a few light scratches and shallow dings — nothing notable — as well as a slightly pushed-in head, which can be pushed out easily. None of the dings have crimped or permanently damaged the surface. The battery compartment is clean and corrosion-free. The colors are vibrant! Best of all, it runs! I tested with 3 size D batteries and the toy lit up, moved in a “mystery action” fashion, and had a loud train whistle. This robot is absolutely guaranteed, without reservation, to be 100% authentic and vintage in every way! Measurements: 6 1/4″ long, 15 3/8″ high, 8″ wide.

Zeppelin | The Hindenburg on fire in 1937

A Zeppelin is a type of rigid airship pioneered by the German Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin in the early 20th century. It was based on designs he had outlined in 1874 and detailed in 1893. His plans were reviewed by committee in 1894 and patented in the United States on 14 March 1899. Given the outstanding success of the Zeppelin design, the term zeppelin in casual use came to refer to all rigid airships. Zeppelins were first flown commercially in 1910 by Deutsche Luftschiffahrts-AG, the world’s first airline in revenue service.

I am pleased to offer this Antique 1930s Marx “Beat It” The Komikal Kop Tin Wind Up Car. This hilarious old Marx toy features a very serious looking police man behind the wheel of a black crazy car. The car has lithod print reading “PD”, “Traffic B”, as well as the Marx trademark and address on the rear. The toy features a fixed windup key on the bottom, and when wound will drive erratically forward, spin, then reverse and repeat all while the “Kop’s” head spins.

This Komical Kop is in good working condition, showing some mild paint wear and light scratching from play. Wind up mechanism functions well, with the car acting as described above. Light oxidation is present in the areas of paint loss, as well as on the interior of the wheels. The plastic windshield has detached on the bottom, but holds strong.

Measures about 8″ L x 2-7/8″ W x 6-3/4″ H

Late 1940’s Joustra Miracle Car 2002 features multi action movements. Wind key (not included) on this clockwork tin car moves forward, changes direction, stops, door opens, tinplate driver emerges, hood opens, hood closes, driver goes back in as door closes, and car continues forward and repeats. Top antenna works as a stop/go lever. Fun litho detailing on the driver figure. Measures 5 1/4″ in length and is marked “France, Brevete S.G.D.G., Modele Depose 2002, Patents Applied For In Great-Britain, United States, Canada, Suisse, Belgique, Nederland, Italia, Espana, Czechoslowakia, Polska. Made In France” on bottom.

This toy is in great working condition. All movements function properly. The piece does show some light scratches and a few chips but retains most of the original coloring. The unfinished metal areas show spots of wear and darkening. There are a few small dents and dings and the antenna is slightly bent but functions well. Great vintage piece displays well and would make a fun addition to any collection.

Vintage Distler Blue Packard Convertible, circa 1950s. Distler cars are known for their elaborate design, featuring front wheel steering, brake, reverse, neutral, and gears 1-3 (all controls of which are located on dash or near steering wheel). Another great feature of this car is that it still has its original windshield, which is rare to come across. The car is constructed of tin and has bright litho and original rubber tires (even a spare on the back!). Marked “Germany” on the dash, and “Made in U.S. Zone Germany” on the underside.

This car is in good working condition, showing some moderate scratching and some paint wear from age/play. It looks as if someone has painted the headlights, and spots of gray trim paint can be seen near the windshield and convertible top. Car does not come with a Distler Wind Key, but was tested and all functions were working strong. Tires show some light cracking to the rubber, but still rotate well when the car moves.

Car measures about 10-1/2″ L x 3-5/8″ W x 3-1/2″ H

Vintage Wind-up Toys

Marx | Jumping Jalopy | Wind-Up Car
Marx | Jumping Jalopy | Wind-Up Car

Wind-up toys date far back into history, into the 15th century. Karel Grod, a German inventor, created some of the first wind-up toys, including a metal fly and a mechanical eagle. Also, in 1509, Leonardo da Vinci created a wind-up lion as a greeting for Louis XII in Italy. Wind-up toys were at first for only royalty, and were much more elaborate, with a very complex system of gears and springs. René Descartes also created a life-sized wind-up human girl to prove a theory that all animals were very complex machines. However, as legend goes, the mechanical girl was thrown overboard after a man was frightened by it.

After the much larger, elaborate wind-up machine art declined in interest, wind-up toys were created very cheaply and in very large numbers by the 1800s. Wind-up machines then became known as wind-up toys, and were designed in all different forms to move around. European toy makers created and mass produced the first tin windup toys during the late 1880s. Over the next 60 to 70 years, more manufacturers created ever more intricate designs. The trend stopped with the introduction of the small and inexpensive Alkaline battery in the 1960s which allowed motors to run without a wind up mechanism. Over the next 20 years, wind up toys lost popularity.

Plastic Wind-ups started in 1977 when the Japanese company Tomy made the classic walking Robot (Rascal Robot). Tomy’s ability to build small precision plastic gears and parts allowed them to greatly reduce the size of the gear box (housing the spring drive).

German Metal Toys

German Metal Tin Toy
German Metal Tin Toy

Germany was the major producer of tin toys in the world in the early 20th century. The most famous German manufacturer of tin toys was Ernst Paul Lehmann who is said to have exported 90% of his toys. A number of manufactures scrambled to catch up in the beginning of the 20th century, but it wasn’t until after World War I, with anti-German sentiment high, that they began to make real gains. There was a growing demand for American produced products and by the 1920s American firms had overtaken the competition. The production of tin toys was discontinued during World War II because of the need for raw materials in the war effort. After the war, tin toys were produced in large numbers in Japan.

In great working condition showing only light scratches and chips to paint. Has a few small spots of oxidation, mostly to top turret and along the inner side of the wheels. Original tracks still nice with only a few small nicks and no cracks. Would make a great addition to any collection.
