1 ½” ( 4cm ) tall, 4 ” ( 10cm ) long velvet bodied glass eyed “ jumping frog “ and stamped on bottom : MADE IN GERMANY SCHUCO PATENT “. The windup key protrudes ( and is permanently affixed ) from the left side.

Charming and well -constructed all wooden milk wagon and horse with all original paint and in good working order , 21’ ( 53 cm ) long, and 9” ( 23 cm ) tall to top of wagon, and as well as a toy, also advertised the Sheffield Farms Milk Company in New York City, who was a major supplier of milk there in latter part of 19th Century and the first half of the 20th. According to Wikipedia that after the early 1960’s the property formerly housing the Sheffield Farms Company on West 57th Street in New York now is the current location of the CBS Broadcasting facilities there. In addition to just being a toy wagon, it is also a pull toy and when the cord is pulled from the front the horse’s feet move back and front as if walking. Also perhaps a bit unusual is that the horse’s hooves do not actually touch the surface as he is propelled forward. Something a bit different and a great prop for making a display!…….US$ 575.
