Wonderful single bookend of a circus elephant, standing 3-legged on a ball which rests on a cushion. I love the creases in the pillow and the tassel trim around its edges. There are markings on the back side of the base, probably artist initials but I can’t make them out. Bronze-clad, a manufacturing process by which a skin of bronze was deposited on a plaster form through electro-plating. A handful of companies used this method in the early 1900s to make decorative household objects that had the look, feel, and heft of solid bronze yet were affordable by the middle class. No maker’s mark but I have seen an ashtray with this same elephant as the decorative element, and that ashtray is signed Armor Bronze and dated 1928. No breaks in the cladding, nothing dented or mashed. I have provided a close-up of where the feet meet the ball to show there are no cracks in what often is a fragile junction in such a design. The tusks are ivorine, original and undamaged. The red color probably is not original but if that is true, it does look old based on the wear. The ball shows some chipping but, overall, a surprising amount of the white paint remains intact. The piece sits flat and stable. PLEASE NOTE: camera flash makes the red look a bit brighter than it appears in natural light. 8 1/2 inches tall; base is 4 1/4 inches X 3 1/2 inches. Heavy at a bit over 4 pounds. Perfect gift for the lover of this intelligent, social, threatened creature. Which should be all of us. I pack with care.

PLEASE READ FULL DESCRIPTION. DON’T HESITATE TO OFFER. Come one come all to see this beautiful Antique Pre-war Circus Seal with a Wooden Barbell Wind-up Tin Toy. This gorgeus little guy has been performing the same trick for 90 years or more. When he is wound up he rolls forward while the barbell spins around on top of his nose. He was made by a company in the United States named J. Chein (shown in picture #10 and #11). It’s colors are very nice. No noticeable fading anywhere. The lithographs are crisp and clean. There is very minimal wear consistent with age. The only noticeable flaw I see is on the left side of the seals neck area (shown and picture #12). His wind-up mechanism works well but he’s not winning any races anytime soon. He still scoots across the floor under his own power. Everything is 100% completely original with no replacement or missing parts. The barbells are also original and a beautiful red colored wood. Its rod that sticks out of the top of its nose and also the barbell rod are both completely straight. This beautiful little seal has a gorgeous face and quite an amazing circus ringmaster jacket complete with tails on. I would consider him in near mint condition based upon the very minor flaw seen in picture #12. The lithographs are very detailed and done in a beautiful way. He has a stationary key on his left hand side and it is completely original. It’s measurements are approximately (measurements taken with the barbell pointing forward to tail) 5 1/2in. L × 2 1/2in. W (including statonary key) × 4in. This dandy of an Antique Pre-war Near Mint J. Chein Circus Seal with Barbell Wind-up Tin Toy would be perfect for any animal lover, circus fan, and or any tin toy collector.

THIS IS A SUPER RARE TOY IN ESPECIALLY RARE ALL ORIGINAL CONDITION. MADE BY THE SAME MAKERS AS HILL CLIMBERS AND IDENTICAL IN CONSTRUCTION AND WOOD AND TIN MATERIALS, BUT IS A PUSH TOY AS THERE IS NO CAST IRON FLYWHEEL UNDERNEATH. Probably made by DP CLARK SCHIEBEL or a similar toy maker of that time. Measures approx 15 long. All original and ret ains the orig cast iron figure and missing a steering wheel i think? The paint is in ORIGINAL condition, yes some chips and wear and 2 nails missing from the roof so its a bit loose, but overall this super rare toy displays very well with its remaining light blue, white and gold paint,, it retains the original decal in front. Has really cool gold pin striping. WHEN PUSHED ALONG, THE ANIMALS AND BALL ARE ARTICULATED AND SWING BACK AND FORTH INSIDE THE CAGE! ONE ANIMAL IS MISSING AND ONE IS BENT BUT CAN BE REPAIRED EASILY. For its age its still in quite good condition in my opinion, and i have been collecting for 45 years. This one is a bargain even at todays sad antique toy values. TAKE A LOOK AND SEE WHAT YOU THINK.
