SOLD ~ ANTIQUE GERMAN BEAR IN LITHO WOOD CAGE ON WHEELS WITH SQUEAKER
German Bear in Litho Wood Cage on Wheels Squeaker Toy. The cage is 9 1/4" x 5 1/4" x 7 " tall. Red tile lithograph roof and sides. Metal wheels. I have seen another for sale and it was marked 'Made in Germany' on the bottom.....this one is not. Roof is curved. Bear is composition covered with gold bristle mohair & glass eyes. When you open the door, the bear swings out and makes a squeaking noise (growl?). The bear is about 5 1/2" long and 4" tall to top of head. Early toy, 1910-20's vintage. Litho on the roof is lighter in some areas. The roof has two corners with damage, a crack in it, wood chipped off in one area and some peeling of the red litho shingles. One of the “bars” is missing on the cage door. The back wall is bowed in the middle. It has definitely been played with. This piece is not perfect but I have taken photos of all sides to show it’s condition.
