Colorful Old Wooden Acrobat Squeeze Toy on Stand

Regular price $44.00

I find it impossible to resist these old acrobat squeeze toys when the acrobats are as good as this guy. How to resist this delightfully goofy, hand-painted pink face, coupled with the fantastic turquoise and yellow of his outfit?  I'd think he dates to the early 20th century, and extra nice that there is a base to squeeze handle, making for easy tabletop display. It takes a couple of squeezes to get him going, but once one does he's very acrobatic!

Overall dimensions: 9 5/8" t x 2 1/4" w x 2" d. Just the figure measures 4 5/8" t. Very good overall condition. A little paint loss on the handles and one of the sides of the handle stands just a little shy of straight up and down.
