IVES BLAKESLEE PAINTED PALACE STILL BANK.

Often thought of by most still bank collectors that a bank like this is either the premier or the pinnacle for those collecting building banks. Normally found in a japanned finish, it is a rarity to find a painted version, especially one in this condition. This particular example is polychromed in an apple green with red roof lines, gold highlighting and a painted grass lawn. All too often, the palace bank is susceptible to steeple damage, railing damage and/or chimney turret damage. The trap with the embossed letters “I.B. & Co.” appears to be either an original trap from a japanned version or a replacement trap that has been painted red to match the rear facade of the bank. Paint overall is very fine plus and perhaps a light polishing would enhance the vibrancy of the paint? SIZE: Approx 8″ w x 5″ d x 7-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above; bank has no apparent damage to iron castings and is overall in excellent plus condition. 1-14640 (4,500-6,500) – Lot 1003

IVES BLAKESLEE PALACE BANK.

An elaborate and highly detailed casting with a multitude of various pieces, this particular still bank has its original japanned finish with gilt trim and a painted front lawn with highlighting. This particular bank, due to its detailed castings, often has damaged castings such as the front railings and/or the steeple, but this particular version is complete and intact without any of aforementioned issues. Bank still retains its original iron trap. SIZE: Approx 5″ d x 8″ w x 7-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall very good plus, slightly heavier wear to front edge of green lawn. 1-14642 (1,000-2,000) – Lot 1004

1005

LARGE EAGLE STILL BANK.

Of unknown manufacture, but purported to have been made by an upstate New York company as a sideline to their typical manufacture of other items. There are several versions of this bank and more than likely various companies made this or similar versions. Normally found, the castings tend to be rougher but overall the castings on this particular bank are relatively fine as opposed to other versions that have surfaced over the years. The bank is somewhat heavy and massive, and upon close examination, two individuals are standing in the front doors of the bank. I am sure this had some significance, but the true meaning of this has escaped with time. The eagle atop of the chimney is proportionately incongruous with the size of the building itself… artist interpretation or availability of other items used by same foundry at the time. SIZE: Approx 9-1/2″ t x 5-1/4″ w x 5″ d. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall fine to very fine original paint finish. 1-14651 (600-900) – Lot 1005

1006

KENTON’S LARGE & MEDIUM “COLUMBIA BANKS”.

A pair of elaborately cast Columbia Banks manufactured by Kenton, with both banks retaining their original combination traps on the underside. The large version is silver with a multitude of gold highlighting to the elaborate castings (a couple of minor casting flaws on front facade filigree). The smaller version is enameled in white with gold highlighting to the fanciful castings. SIZE: Approx 5-1/2″ d x 5-1/2″ w x 7″ t and 4-1/2″ d x 4-1/2″ w x 5-1/2″ t respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall fine to very fine. Large version would probably benefit by a light cleaning to remove decades of shelf dust. 1-14655 (600-900) – Lot 1006

1007

MOSQUE MECHANICAL BANK BY JUDD MFG. CO.

An intricately cast iron bank from the 1880s depicting a Mosque. Through an opening in the dome, a gorilla is standing with a tray atop his head where the coin would be deposited. By means of a crank handle on the side, the gorilla revolves around and the coin falls within the bank itself. Atop of the dome is a female figure clutching a wreath in her left hand (replaced figure). Bank, as mentioned is elaborately cast with a japanned finish with some of the original gold highlighting most prevelant on two of the four sides and sections of the domed roof. SIZE: Approx 6″ d x 6″ w x 8-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Castings appear to be excellent and undamaged unless otherwise mentioned. 1-14654 (700-900) – Lot 1007

PAIR OF PAINTED U.S. TREASURY BANKS.

Originally manufactured by Columbia Grey Iron Casting Co., the first bank depicting a more elaborately cast and intricate version enameled in a cream color with gilt trim and red highlighting. Oftentimes this bank is nickel plated or electroplated, it is somewhat unusual to find a painted version, especially one in pristine condition. Original date of manufacture was the mid-1920s and later on in the mid 20th century, the same company produced the same bank but in a less elaborate casting to the front landing area. This bank was also enameled in a cream color, but only with a red roof. SIZE: Approx 3″ x 4″. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Both banks are in original very fine plus to pristine finish. 1-14668 (750-950) – Lot 1008

PAINTED 1882 CHURCH BY KYSER & REX STILL BANK.

Kyser & Rex manufactured a number of still and mechanical banks, most being very visually appealing, as well as being highly sought after by collectors today. Oftentimes this particular example is found in a japanned finish. However, this particular bank is enameled in an off-white color with green roof & base and red door & chimney. Further complemented by gilt highlighting. Intrinsically this is a very aesthetically appealing bank with much attention to detailing such as circular shaped heart windows on left & right sides. A great bank in wonderful original finish and highly sought after by collectors of painted buildings. SIZE: Approx 4″ w x 3″ d x 5-1/4″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall very fine plus. 1-14652-4 (1,250-1,750) – Lot 1009

PAIR OF “CITY BANKS WITH PAYING TELLER” BY JUDD (DEEP & NARROW VERSIONS).

Iron castings produced in the latter part of the 19th century were often very fine & thin with an abundance of intricate detail to said castings. A relatively obscure and seldom found, the first version of the city bank is the much rarer deep bodied building with a depth of approx 4″. Bank retains most of its original japanned finish with a plethora of fine green highlighting to the detailed casting areas of the bank. The second version, the one more commonly found, is the narrow version measuring just a little over 2″ deep. Bank was likely originally japanned with a copper wash over the japanning, and quite a bit of the copper wash still remaining on three of the four sides. A great pair of banks, especially for side-by-side comparison; the one having a slatted roof and the other having a simulated half-circular shingled roof. SIZE: Each is approx 3″ w x 5-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall condition is fine to very fine. 1-14653, 1-14660 (1,000-2,000) – Lot 1010

LILLIPUT & HALLS EXCELSIOR MECHANICAL BANKS BY J. & E. STEVENS.

The Halls Lilliput bank, a classic depicting a gentleman holding a scalloped tray, and when a coin is placed on the tray, the weight would allow the gentleman to turn to his left & deposit the coin within. Enameled in a lime green with two-toned brown trims and red & yellow highlighting. Oftentimes this particular bank has a replaced figure and/or tin scalloped tray, or missing its original trap on the underside, or perhaps damage to the fragile and elaborate castings. This particular bank is intact, complete, retains very fine original paint and has no damage to castings. The Halls Excelsior bank is relatively a common bank, but most uncommon in this condition and/or its paint color scheme. By the front door, the doorbell/bead is pulled, and the cupola opens up with a monkey seated at a desk. Original “Cashier” paper label still present. Wooden monkey & desk somewhat suspect and most likely replaced at some point and time. But the visual appeal of this bank is the color scheme and condition. SIZE: Approx 4-1/4″ t and 5″ t respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14648 (850-1,250) – Lot 1011

FRENCH BUREAUX CAISSE & THREE ENGLISH BANKS INCLUDING PAGODA, COUNTY BANK, & BEAR WITH BEE HIVE.

Several variations of this French bank were manufactured; this particular version is cast iron with a brass finish to its exterior. This bank is so typical of the French architecture, particularly regarding commercial and bank buildings of the time period. The pagoda bank, relatively obscure, especially in this country since it is of English manufacture, this particular bank is quite rare, but even more so it is quite appealing being enameled in a dark green with gilt highlighting. When first viewing this bank, one can easily misinterpret this thinking it is of French manufacture since it has the typical French style. The county bank, another English bank, manufactured in cast iron with a japanned finish. What is unusual about this particular bank is the japanned finish is largely intact but it has a copper wash over the japanned finish on the highly intricate and detailed iron castings. Although European banks are not the number one choice of American collectors, this bank has quite a presence and should not be overlooked by collectors of building banks! The fourth bank in this grouping is the classic bear and beehive still bank with elaborate castings. Unfortunately, condition is somewhat poor and a possible missing stem on roof. SIZE: Approx. 9-1/2″ to 4-1/4″ t respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall condition of French bank is phenomenal. Pagoda bank overall is very good plus with typical wear to gold highlighting. County bank is very fine to pristine. Beehive is poor to fair. 1-14659-2, 1-14662 (650-950) – Lot 1012

1013

THREE SKYSCRAPERS BY A.C. WILLIAMS, TRIANGULAR BUILDING BY HUBLEY, & LARGE TIERED HIGH-RISE BY KENTON STILL BANKS.

The first three banks depicting skyscrapers. The largest having six finials with its original keyed trap on underside & still retaining its two original twist pins holding the bank together. Upon close examination it does not look as though these pins have ever been turned as paint is still intact on both pins. Both the medium and small sized are intact with four finials on their roofs and original twist pins holding them together. The Hubley triangular bank building is an unusual form and held together by screw & nut with bank emblazoned across the top and a clock at the pinnacle. Kenton high-rise is complete & intact with a screw & nut holding it together at base and top. A nice group of building banks! SIZE: Varies from 3-1/2″ to 6-1/2″ t on first 3 banks. Hubley approx 6″ t. Skyscraper approx 6″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall very fine plus, slightly heavier wear to silver finish on Hubley bank building. 1-14657 (650-950) – Lot 1013

1014

CUPOLA BANK BY J. & E. STEVENS.

Occasionally, a painted still bank stands out as being extra special, either due to the paint work, coloring, provenance, or some other feature. This particular version of the cupola bank has a phenomenal painted front with an abundance of mica added to the front facade. Its elaborately stenciled roof further adds to the appeal of this still bank. Perhaps the final feature of interest is the notation of the rear of the bank written in script “From Aunt Na___ie September 1869”. SIZE: Approx 5-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall very fine plus. For some unknown reason, it appears the lower part of the cupola where it connects to roof has solder marks at front and rear???. Bank has not been taken apart to inspect or determine why this has occurred. 1-14663 (850-1,250) – Lot 1014

PAIR OF PAINTED CUPOLA BANKS BY J. & E. STEVENS.

Once again, another pair of cupola banks with completely different coloring and highlighting. This pair having pinstriped rooves and simplistic bases, as opposed to the previous pair that had simulated painted stone or brick foundations. It is quite obvious that you could have 20 of these buildings and they could all be different with regards to coloring and/or trim work. SIZE: Approx 5-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Good to very good. 1-14663-1 (750-950) – Lot 1015

1016

PAIR OF PAINTED CUPOLA BANKS BY J. & E. STEVENS.

A charming pair of cupola banks in painted versions. One with a green stenciled roof and the other with a plain black roof. What is interesting is the various colors that were used, and it appears that one could have a multitude of the same bank in various colors and finish. Altogether, they are quite impressive and can make a collection onto itself. SIZE: Each is approx 5-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall very good to fine. 1-14663-2 (750-950) – Lot 1016

1017

PAINTED TOWN HALL BANK BY KYSER & REX.

Wow!! Normally, this Kyser & Rex bank has a japanned finish. This particular bank literally jumps out at you. Enameled in vibrant colors, yellow sided with red base, door & cupola and a dark blue shingled roof make this a standout/standalone unit. Bank retains its original twist pin and unfortunately any remnants of a paper label on the clock tower are gone, which is typical. Just a great rare piece to find. Especially in such extraordinarily original finish. SIZE: Approx 4-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall is very fine plus. 1-14644 (1,000-2,000) – Lot 1017

TOWN HALL AND “THE VILLA” STILL BANKS.

The Town Hall still bank by Kyser & Rex is a relatively obscure and tough bank to find. This particular bank retains its original enameled black finish with remnants of the original clock paper on rear clock face. Original twist pin intact and present. This bank was by manufactured by Kyser & Rexs of Philadelphia. The second bank is “The Villa Bank” of English manufacture by Sydenham & McOustra in extremely well cast facade on the front of bank including its bay window. The latter part of the 19th century, the English manufactured a number of iron banks equally as detailed and delicately cast as their American counterparts… this is an example of such. Bank retains much of its original japanned finish. SIZE: 4-1/2″ t & 4″ t respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: First bank is very fine. Second bank is fine to very fine; slightly heavier chipping to japanning on roof. 1-14644-1, 1-14646 (1,000-1,500) – Lot 1018

1019

PAINTED SMALL CROWN “BANK” ON LEGS BY J. & E. STEVENS.

An extremely rare and desirable bank, not only in form, but condition as well. This seldom found still bank is in remarkable original paint finish with slightly heavier chipping to paint on rooftop or red chimney. Unique in form, it is much more appealing in this size rather than its big brother which is the following lot! Quite delicate in nature, that if a child were to drop this bank, easily the base could loose a leg or be damaged. SIZE: 2-1/2″ w x 2-1/4″ d x 3-1/4″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall very fine ++. 1-14667-1 (1,750-2,750) – Lot 1019

PAINTED LARGE CROWN “BANK” ON LEGS BY J. & E. STEVENS.

A desirable painted still bank with an aesthetically appealing form, the building itself is situated on a scalloped base standing upon four tapered legs. Enameled in a dark green with red highlighting and dotted squiggly trims on the front corner supports. A tough bank to find and quite appealing, and yet so different than its small brother sold in the previous lot. SIZE: 4-1/4″ x w 3-1/2″ d x 4-3/4″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall very good plus. Hairline on roof extending from coin slot on right and left sides. 1-14667 (800-1,200) – Lot 1020

1021

SIX-SIDED AND CONE TOP STILL BANK BUILDINGS, WITH “SNAP IT” MECHANICAL BANK.

The first being a finely japanned with gilt trim 6-sided building, possibly by Kyser & Rex, an unusual bank as well as petite in size, this piece still retains its original twist pin. The second bank of unknown manufacture is referred to as the Cone Top building which also has a japanned finish (darkened & thinned), and still retaining its original twist pin. The third is a “Snap It” bank produced in still bank and mechanical bank form. This particular bank is 6-sided and has a spring loaded tray, thus making it a mechanical bank. More than likely it had a japanned finish which is all but worn off on this particular piece. SIZE: Varies from 2-1/2″ to 4″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14641, 1-14672 (800-1,200) – Lot 1021

1022

FINIAL BANK BY KYSER & REX.

An attractive and delicately cast bank in uncommon condition! The four sides are extremely thin with a multitude of openings which makes production of this bank very difficult. The roof itself is quite cupped which again is a difficult task when pouring cast iron. Kyser & Rex had a knack for making delicate as well as difficult castings. This particular bank has a japanned finish with gilt trims and copper highlighting. In phenomenal original condition the overall appearance is very fine plus to pristine. SIZE: 5-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14670 (650-950) – Lot 1022

1023

SIX BUILDING BANKS BY VARIOUS MAKERS.

Included in this lot is a Stevens 4-tower bank, a Kyser & Rex villa, a pair of Stevens home savings banks with dog head finials, a Stevens bank building, and a Kenton fort bank. A nice grouping of banks primarily japanned finish with gilt trim. The Kenton fort bank is silver with electroplated highlighting. Overall ranges from good to very good. SIZE: Varies from 4″ to 6″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Stevens 4-tower most likely has replaced screw holding bank together. Otherwise banks appear to be free of damage and/or replaced parts. 1-14656-3, 1-14659-1, 1-14670 (700-900) – Lot 1023

1024

INDEPENDENCE HALL TOWER BY ENTERPRISE MANUFACTURING CO.

A great semi-mechanical bank made in Philadelphia depicting the Independence Tower. Beautiful, delicate, elaborate castings, being enameled in various colors, this bank has quite a presence. A light cleaning to the colored section to remove years of “shelf dust” would further enhance the appeal of this bank. The penny can be deposited directly inside the bank and a lever would allow a child to strike the bell within. A great example in wonderful original condition! SIZE: Approx 9-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14650 (1,500-2,500) – Lot 1024

1025

MOODY & SANKY “HOLD THE FORT” STILL BANK.

An interesting bank manufactured by Smith & Egge. The base upon which it sits is similar in nature to the large Crown bank manufactured by J. & E. Stevens. Perhaps of note is the gentlemen pictured within where actually religious revivalists during the 1870s & 1880s. One begins to wonder is perhaps the manufacturer of this bank had similar religious beliefs, and thus, that was his purpose of producing a bank of this nature. Comparing this bank to the Stevens Crown bank, the similarities are quite evident and perhaps they used the Stevens model to create this particular bank. A “picture frame” on the front held the pictures of Moody & Sanky with a note underneath either saying “Hold the Fort” or “90 and 9” (purported to be one of Sanky’s favorite hymns). A rare bank in very fine original condition. The pictures visible on front are possible copies/replacements(?). “Hold the Fort” paper label appears to be original. SIZE: Approx 5″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall very fine plus. Slightly heavier chipping to top of red roof. 1-14645 (2,500-3,500) – Lot 1025

THREE VARIOUS SIZED J. & E. STEVENS CROWN BANKS AND A PRESTO MECHANICAL BANK BY KYSER & REX.

The largest of the crown banks approx. 4-3/4″ tall is enameled in yellow with blue highlighting and red base & roof line. The mid-sized approx 3-1/2″ tall is painted gold with copper highlighting. The smallest, approx 3″, is yellow with blue highlighting & red base and partial red roof. All three banks overall are in good to very good condition with typical wear, especially at edges. The Presto mechanical or should I say semi-mechanical has a japanned finish with red trim & gilt highlighting. Bank still retains its original keyed trap on underside, key for trap is present as well. Overall condition is very good to fine and approx 4-1/4″ tall. SIZE: As stated above. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above, the small Crown bank appears to have been coated with a lacquer which is evident by black lighting rear of bank and one can see original yellow paint at coin slot with probable lacquering applied over entire bank. 1-14652, 1-14669-1 (600-900) – Lot 1026

1027

HOME SAVINGS BANK, PAVILION BANK, AND TINY 6-SIDED BUILDING.

A nice grouping of three desirable still banks. The first being a painted home savings bank by J. & E. Stevens with original finish and retaining its original twist pin. The second bank manufactured by Kyser & Rex, a pavilion bank, enameled primarily in cream with a green base and green pagoda styled roof. Bank retains its original twist pin. The third bank, most likely manufactured by Kyser & Rex is a petite 6-sided building retaining its original japanned finish with gilt trim. SIZE: 3-1/2″ t, 3-1/4″ t, and 2-3/4″ t respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall good plus. Japanning on 6-sided building is very fine plus, excepting side and rear panel which seem to have had heavier loss to japanning finish. 1-14641-1 (850-1,250) – Lot 1027

1028

TOWER BANK, CASTLE BANK, AND COLUMBIA TOWER STILL BANKS.

The Tower bank and Castle bank, both manufactured by Kyser & Rex, are overall typical of this company’s work. Elaborate and intricately cast buildings that were emulated in miniature form. The Tower bank itself has a japanned finish with gold & copper highlighting and a red combination door with matching red roof. The Castle bank has a factory flaw lacking one point on tower top and a small chip at center roof alignment, more than likely occurring when a child replaced the pin holding the bank together. Japanned finish is intact and original. The third bank, manufactured by Columbia Grey Iron with embossed lettering on the top Columbia “Tower”. Bank was originally nickel plated which has darkened with age and possibly a good cleaning might bring out some of the original finish. Bank retains its original twist pin. SIZE: Approx 7″ t, 3″ t, and 7″ t respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall good to very good. 1-14656-1, 1-14659, 1-14660-1 (850-1,250) – Lot 1028

1029

FOUR VARIOUS SIZED “STATE BANKS” BY KENTON HARDWARE CO.

A great grouping of japanned state banks. The largest two having key lock doors with a key present for smaller of the two. All four banks are in very fine plus original finish with gilt and copper highlighting. A nice selection of state banks in graduated size that makes an impressive display. Banks have many years of “shelf dust” and a light cleaning would bring out the vibrancy of the original finish. SIZE: Smallest to largest: 3″ t, 4″ t, 5-3/4″ t, and 8-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14661 (800-1,200) – Lot 1029

1030

ROSE WINDOW AND SMALL “HOUSE WITH SLOTTED CHIMNEY”.

The first bank, being petite in size, is of English manufacture with its beautiful original japanned finish and original twist pin. One could easily mistake early English banks for those of American manufacture as the quality of the castings was on par with American iron castings of the same period. A somewhat seldom found bank, especially in America! The second bank, of unknown manufacture, is also petite in size but enormous in appeal along with its detailed castings. Very simplistic in construction, this bank has only five castings and was pinned together, making it difficult for the child to remove his savings. Finished in a black enamel with red highlighting and gilt trims, this bank is also relatively obscure and seldom found. SIZE: Approx 2-1/4″ t and 2-3/4″ t respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: First bank is very fine plus. Second bank is fine to very fine. 1-14641-2, 1-14660-2 (1,000-1,500) – Lot 1030

PAINTED SHIMER BANK BUILDING AND FIVE PAINTED CUPOLA BANKS BY J. & E. STEVENS.

The first bank, manufactured by Shimer, which was a relatively obscure company outside of Bethlehem, PA, manufactured as a sideline toys and banks. This company later became associated with Dent Hardware in nearby Allentown, PA, and later with the Kenton Toy Co. in Kenton, OH. Shimer was an early toy company and their design of toys & banks had intricate detailed castings. This particular bank which is normally found in japanned finish is painted in a yellow with a coffee colored roof and base plate, and highlights are in a mustard color. Bank retains its original twist pin and overall paint finish is good to very good. A really tough still bank to find in painted finish! The cupola banks are quite interesting due to the fact that they are painted versions and trim is highlighted in various colors. These five banks make a nice display and are quite impressive as a grouping. Banks are in original finish and all retain their original screws. SIZE: Shimer: 6″ t. Cupolas: 3-1/4″ t & 4″ t respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall banks are good to very good. 1-4652-1, 1-14656-2, 14671-2 (750-950) – Lot 1031

11 VARIOUS MOSQUE STILL BANKS AND A PRESTO STILL BANK.

Included with this lot are nine A.C. Williams Mosque & Dome buildings. The largest of the group is a squared large door combination mosque painted in gold with copper highlighting. Bank overall is in very fine original finish, but upon close examination has a casting flaw from manufacture by one of the front left hand windows. A slightly smaller mosque, also painted in gold with copper dome is included with this lot. There is a series of four various sized 6-sided mosques with dome tops in original finish, along with two domed buildings of different sizes. There are two Grey Iron Co. domed mosques with original pins in small and medium size. SIZE: Varies from 2-1/2″ to 5″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall ranges from good to very good plus. No damage and/or loss unless otherwise mentioned. 1-14657-1, 1-14669, 1-14671-3 (800-1,200) – Lot 1032

SMALL “HOUSE WITH BAY WINDOW” STILL BANK.

A relatively obscure and very desirable still bank retaining all-original paint finish. Primarily enameled in a light green with blue dormers and red roof. Bank is complete including original screw which still retains significant amount of paint on head of screw. Somewhat petite in size but huge in desirability as well as appeal.

NOVELTY MECHANICAL BANK BY J. & E. STEVENS.

A classic mechanical bank that when the spring-loaded front door is opened, a gentleman appears with a tray, and upon closing the door the coin is deposited within. Primarily in a grey polychrome finish with red & dark blue highlighting. NO damage to the castings, especially hairline cracks to the pinned roof section or opening front door. Two typical points of damage. Bank still retains its original trap on underside. Just a nice solid all-original example. SIZE: Approx 6-3/4″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Good to very good. 1-14664 (700-900) – Lot 1035

Banks have remarkable original japanned finish, some with gilt trimming. SIZE: Varies from 2-1/2″ to 6″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above.

1037

GROUPING OF FOUR INTERESTING CAST IRON STILL BANKS.

This lot has a nice grouping but all four banks have an issue. The Enterprise Independence Hall is for all intense purposes original, but it appears the small gallery on the right & left end where either never cast or have been broken and filed smooth. The Westwood Bronze Memorial bank produced by Service Foundry of Wichita, KS is an interesting bank usually found in a nickel plated finish and it appears that this particular example has had paint enhancement at some point and time. The Stevens cupola bank is an old repaint and there is damage/crack to underside of base. The small domed bank building is an aged old repaint. Due to condition, a very low estimate has been placed on these banks. SIZE: Varies from 3″ to 9″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14650-1, 1-14652, 1-14663-3, 14665 (400-600) – Lot 1037

1038

MAGIC & NOVELTY MECHANICAL BANKS BY J. & E. STEVENS.

A nice pair of mechanical banks but once again an issue with each unit. The Magic bank appears to have a fair amount of overpaint repainting, but otherwise is complete and in working order. No damage to the castings, no hairline cracks which is typical of this bank, to the roof area. The Novelty bank has a fair amount of original paint but it appears the front door area has been overpainted/repainted. Otherwise bank has no damage to castings, free of hairline damages to pin area on roof which is a typical occurrence. SIZE: Approx 5″ and 6-1/2″ respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: On the underside of bank, the spring loaded casting cover appears to be a replacement. Otherwise condition as stated above. 1-14648-1, 1-14664-1 (750-950) – Lot 1038

1039

1040

LARGE STOLLWERCK VENDING BANK ALONG WITH A DROSTE SPAAR-AUTOMAAT.

Classic German chocolate vending banks from the 1920s that visually were most attractive with stunning lithography. The large Stollwerck has a plethora of cherubs adorning all four sides along with gnomes doing the heavy work. The Droste bank, on the rear, has a picture of Mom, Dad and the two children, and on the right side daughter & son playing with the chocolate vending bank. Wonderful strong lithography in fine to very fine original condition for both pieces. SIZE: 11″ and 6″ respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14674 (500-700) – Lot 1040

1041

PAIR OF SMALL STOLLWERCK CHOCOLATE VENDING BANKS.

The first bank depicting finely lithographed sides adorned with cherubs and delivering chocolate. Front panel has a window to display goods within. The second Stollwerck bank is the classic version with the hand shadow puppets. Once again finely lithographed and this particular bank, although German, was made for the American market, since the directions and lettering are in English. SIZE: Each is 6-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Both banks are in very good to fine original finish. 1-14673 (300-500) – Lot 1041

1042

THRIFTY TOM’S JIGGER BANK, PAN-G FUNNY DANCER, AND AN UNUSUAL STANDING JIGGER TOY.

Thrifty Tom Jigger Bank manufactured by Ferdinand Strauss worked on the premise of when a coin was deposited in the coin slot, the jigger would do a dance about the stage. This particular toy was the only version to have this lithography including simulated coins on the stage area and the words emblazoned on the longer sides “Thrifty Tom’s Jigger Bank” with a beehive in the center. One wonders the significance of the beehive with the simulated bees flying about. The figure himself also had slightly unique lithography with striped pants as opposed to the typical checkered pants. The Pan-G as discussed with the earlier model is quite unusual having been manufactured by C.E. Carter Toy Co. The third is an interesting variation which is seldom found, of unknown manufacture, depicting a black gentleman standing atop a circular base. A clockwork mechanism contained within his body, and the fellow would do a jig just moving his legs. Slightly more muted and less visually attractive litho with single color arms, this toy was obviously a low budget toy made for the masses. The figure itself is about 1-1/2″ smaller than the typical Coon figure, yet this is a relatively uncommon and elusive black jigger toy. SIZE: Approx 10-1/2″, 10-1/2″ and 7-1/2″ t.respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Thrifty Tom is in very fine to near mint condition. Pan-G also is very fine plus, however he is lacking tin sleeve to hold figure in place and attach to mechanism. A minor and inexpensive repair. 1-14737, 1-14740-1 (600-900) – Lot 1042

1043

DAPPER DAN BANK & JAZZBO JIM w/ VIOLINIST.

The first bank is the classic Dapper Dan by Marx. To compete with Strauss who also made a similar toy that operated by depositing a coin, Marx created this version. Unfortunately, to remove the coins one had to remove the top dancing platform. Overall the toy is in remarkable condition. It appears that this toy must hardly have ever been used as there is very minimal wear where his arms swing and hit the side of his body, and the dancing area shows very little action where his feet would have tapped on the brown base. Some minor scuffing to lithographed sides, most likely some of this occurred when the toy was in its original box and shipped from the factory to the store to the new owner. Toy is in excellent working condition and overall condition is very fine plus. The next toy, Jazzbo Jim by Unique Art, is the more deluxe version with not only Jim on the roof, but his young sidekick the Bellhop playing a violin next to him. One could only suppose that the company having much competition by other companies producing similar toys, needed to upgrade and attract new customers so at some point, added the second figure. Again this toy is in remarkable very fine plus to near mint condition. Virtually no scuffs or scratching to not only the roof but sides as well. Visually this is one of the greatest ethnic toys produced with caricature figures on all sides. I guess one could say this toy would be politically incorrect by today’s standards. Toy is in excellent working order. SIZE: Approx 10″ & 9-1/2″ t respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As described above. 1-14739 (800-1,200) – Lot 1043

1044

CARETTE 12″ GREY LIMO.

Fine all-original example in overall very good plus condition. This particular example is the deluxe model with white spoked wheels with rubber tires, cowl lamps, opening passenger compartment doors with beveled glass, and a female passenger seated within. Gold flashed luggage rack retains most of its original finish, and the overall litho appearance which is typical, has variance in coloring but is correct. Dual levers on either side of the car for braking or reversing motor. Clockwork mechanism in functional working condition. Windup key is present. A nice all-original example of a desirable car. SIZE: 12″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Blue roof overall is very nice, however this is some chipping in a few areas at edges. Litho coloring is somewhat uneven & not uniform but correct. 1-14621 (3,500-5,500) – Lot 1044

1045

9″ CARETTE LIMOUSINE.

A typical somewhat plain Jane 9″ limo with chauffeur and opening passenger compartment doors. Lithographed in red with white highlighting and a blue roof, the car features a luggage rack with pressed grey spoked wheels. SIZE: Approx 9″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall good to very good with typical wear at door edges & roof lines. Minimal wear to tin tires. 1-14628 (800-1,200) – Lot 1045

1046

PAIR OF HESS AUTOMOBILES.

This pair of Hess automobiles, one an open touring car and the second an enclosed limousine are in virtually near mint unplayed with condition. To engage the mechanism, one would turn the crank extending from the radiator on each car in a counterclockwise method in order for the car to move forward. The wheels show minimal wear where either toy was run on the floor but the lithography on the side of each vehicle is extremely vibrant, almost as though these toys were made just yesterday! One cannot say enough about these vehicles or their overall condition considering they are probably 80+ years old. SIZE: Approx 10″ and 9″ l respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14695 (1,250-2,250) – Lot 1046

1047

HESSMOBIL RUNABOUT.

Classic toy manufactured by John Hess circa teens/1920s. This runabout roadster has the typical crank wind mechanism that would engage a flywheel and let the car run in a forward or reverse motion. Car is in pristine original condition with black lithographed running boards and a maroon body. Typical Hess logo on trunk of car with the normal chauffeur with goggles driving. An interesting feature is how often toy companies borrowed/copies one another. The following lot is a Japanese version which is virtually identical in many respects. The questions is which came first – the chicken or the egg? Or in this case, the Hess version or the Japanese version. SIZE: Approx 8″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As described above. 1-14779 (750-950) – Lot 1047

1047a

LOT OF 2 GERMAN TIN WINDUP LIMOUSINES.

Lot includes elongated open air limousine (possibly by Fischer) in red with lithographed pinstripes, opening front and rear doors, simulated tufted seats, with driver and steerable front end. Also includes Fischer limo in silver with yellow highlights complete with driver and burgundy canopy and steerable front end. SIZE: 11″ l and 7-1/2″ l, respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Both are very good with second vehicle having some very minor chips. 1-14707 (800-1,200) – Lot 1047a

1048

HESSMOBILE OPEN TOURING CAR WITH OB.

Similar to the early Hess touring car but smaller in size, but virtually in very fine to near mint condition. The litho is vibrant & bright and the cardboard box has no markings other than 1021 stamped on the lid, which is the same number stamped on the radiator of this vehicle. Again, toy is activated by a crank on the front of the vehicle. Mechanics appear to be in functional operational condition. SIZE: Approx 8-1/2″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14627 (700-900) – Lot 1048

1049

PREWAR JAPANESE ROADSTER WITH PASSENGERS.

Visually a great prewar Japanese tin toy that could be easily mistaken for German manufacture. An open roadster with a goggled driver and his female passenger attired for the drive in the country. Vibrant superclean litho with number “20” on the radiator and “Made in Japan” printed on backside of car directly behind driver and passenger. Visually an attractive toy and a great size, 7″ for a prewar Japanese toy! Simulated spoke tires and a clockwork mechanism (key turns but spring does not catch) on the underside. A really neat toy and a seldom found opportunity to buy a prewar Jap toy, especially in pristine condition. SIZE: 7″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall very fine plus, slight scuff here or there but not offensive. 1-14730 (800-1,200) – Lot 1049

1050

OROBR & DISTLER VEHICLES.

The first vehicle being a Orobr truck with simulated cloth canopy covering bed of truck. Windup mechanism on the underside (working condition) and four simulated spoked tires. Lithographed in a dark blue with grey canopy and grey wheels, this toy is in virtually unplayed with condition showing only some minimal scuffing and wear. The second vehicle being a Distler ragtop limousine, powered by friction with a centrifugal lead wheel, this is an unusually long vehicle lithographed in a bright yellow with simulated ragtop roof. This vehicle is in very fine plus all-original condition. Both vehicles have maker’s name either on the front radiator grill or passenger door. SIZE: Approx 6-1/4″ & 7-1/2″ respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14750 (300-500) – Lot 1050

1051

LEHMANN WALKING DOWN BROADWAY WITH OB.

Perhaps one of Lehmann’s most visually attractive as well as highly sought after toys. This particular example retains its original parts such as the ladies’ purse, his walking stick, and their accompanying four-legged friend the dog. Not your typical windup, it was propelled by a friction type drive and a long rod would be attached to the gear edge protruding from the woman’s skirt. A fly wheel contained within the woman’s body would then spin and the wheels on the underside would allow the toy to propel forward in a lifelike manner. Wonderful early fine lithography with some wear most notable where the woman’s bag and arm would brush against her skirt. The box itself overall is very strong with some taping to the lid edge and a wonderful black & white picture of the toy with directions of operation. It appears that the original owner’s name was written on the underside of the box “Mr. & Mrs. Clare Day”. A tough toy to find but only a handful exist with their original boxes! Mr. Soling created a plexiglass display case for display purposes with a simulated brick street and a lamp to further enhance the overall visual attractiveness of this toy. SIZE: Approx 7-1/2″ t. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14618 (5,500-7,500) – Lot 1051

1052

LEHMANN ANXIOUS BRIDE.

A classic as well as an intrinsically charming toy featuring the Lehmann rad cycle pulling a carriage with a well-dressed lady seated within. Dubbed “The Anxious Bride” the gentleman driver proceeds forward twisting & turning while the seated lady bobs her head & arms flutter about on their way to the church. Toy is in very fine plus all-original condition including the tissue the lady holds & her ermine stole. Both parts of this toy not only match in condition but coloring as well as oftentimes over the years various pieces are “married” together. Toy is slightly dusty from sitting on a shelf, and just a very light cleaning would bring out the lustre of the fine lithography. Virtually little or no wear to the white wheels from having run on the floor. A remarkable example in really great original condition! SIZE: Overall approx 9″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Anywhere is most noticeable where the back would connect to the front with a bit of minor chipping where back end would turn & rub against front. Not overly noticeable, just want to mention minor wear. An original tin trunk of Hornby manufacture has been added & set at the lady’s feet. 1-14774 (1,000-1,500) – Lot 1052

1053

PAIR OF LEHMANN AUTOBUSES.

The first being the more elusive more desirable is the brown autobus in very fine all-original condition with some oxidation to the copper flashing on the handrails. Wheel edge show wear/paint chipping where the toy ran on the floor; otherwise very fine plus. The more common version in red is in exceptional very fine to near mint condition with virtually no wear to wheels and brown highlighting to railing edges is phenomenally strong. SIZE: 8″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14692 (1,500-2,500) – Lot 1053

1054

LEHMANN BRENNABOR SEDAN.

This particular toy is in very fine plus all original condition and perhaps the most interesting feature is the electric headlights. Not quite sure where the battery sat, but the toy appears to be complete and original including the on/off switch on the right front fender as well as the contacts and wiring to the headlights. One can only imagine the excitement of the young boy with such a life like automobile with working headlights, after winding it up and racing forward in a darkened room it must have been sheer delight. Lithographed in a vibrant red coloring with black running boards and roof, the Lehmann trademark on both doors, radiator and rear panel as well. A seldom found and elusive toy especially one in this condition! SIZE: 7″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Overall very fine plus. Small nick on black roof. 1-14700 (700-900) – Lot 1054

LEHMANN EHE & BUCKING BRONCHO.

A nice all-original fine example of this automotive Lehmann toy. The litho is clean & bright and the white wheels show only some minimal wear of floor use. Overall the condition is very good to fine. Clockwork mechanism complete, intact and functional. The Bucking Broncho toy overall is a very fine example with only minimal wear where the hooves would hit at the rear of platform or the nose would scrape on the front. Mechanism has been tested & is functional. The litho & hand painting hare extremely bright & clean as well. Although this is not a highly sought after Lehmann toy, this particular example is exceptional and perhaps more than worthy of purchasing for one’s collection. SIZE: Approx 6-3/4″ and 6-3/4″ respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As described above. 1-14744 (400-600) – Lot 1055

1056

LEHMANN AHA & ONKEL WITH BIRDS.

The Aha is a somewhat common Lehmann toy. This particular example is in very fine plus all-original condition. This vehicle came with and without a driver. However, Mr. Soling added a seated chauffeur to the front for display purposes (figure slips right out). The litho is bright & vibrant with even the gold flashing mostly intact and bright as well. The white on the tires shows minimal evidence of having run on the floor. Clockwork mechanism intact and operational. The Lehmann Onkel is a somewhat more obscure version, this perhaps being a very early version. The umbrella itself features flying and/or nesting birds. This particular version also has gold flashed wheels with probably a large percentage of the gold flashing still intact & bright, the front wheel is a lead wheel as opposed to later versions which utilized a pressed tin 2-sided wheel. Overall very good to fine original condition, especially to top of umbrella which is in very fine to near mint condition. Clockwork mechanism intact & in operational condition. A real tough version of this toy to find! SIZE: Each is approx 5-1/2″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As described above. 1-14745 (800-1,200) – Lot 1056

1057

LEHMANN UHU.

A classic Lehmann toy of an amphibious car as it would run on land or it would run in the water. Technically, this car with its finned wheels would run in the bathtub, but I think due to the slots in the undercarriage it would eventually sink. A great concept, the driver sitting behind an over sized windshield, his head gyrating about as the car plods along. Overall, this is a very nice, all original example with just some minimal wear most noticeably to the edges of the upper and lower framework. Windup mechanism in working order. SIZE: 9″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As state above, very good to fine original finish. 1-14775 (700-900) – Lot 1057

1058

LEHMANN ONKEL, AKA NEW CENTURY CYCLE, WITH OB.

Another great toy from the Soling collection. Perhaps the most intriguing part is the original cardboard box which for the most part is like a brick. The box itself is lacking one end flap to the lid, but has an incredible black & white picture covering virtually the entire top. Interesting it has two names, Der Automobile Onkel, and perhaps the English version was called New Century Cycle. The toy is pictured driving down a city street with gentlemen & young men tipping their hats, which was the whole premise of how this toy works. Written in crayon on top of the box is perhaps the original owner’s name “Charley”. The toy itself is virtually very fine plus to near mint unplayed with condition. Absolutely incredible the gold flashing on the wheels and trim work literally jumps out at you showing little or no signs of oxidation. The blue body of the vehicle is virtually perfect with only a couple minor scuffs. The painted figures themselves are amazingly bright and perhaps the only noticeable issue that one could have is, upon close examination, there is some minor chipping to the white on the painted wheels. Even the umbrella, which is red striped, is close to flawless. Truly a remarkable example! SIZE: Approx 5-1/2″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As described above. 1-14612 (800-1,200) – Lot 1058

1059

TFS CO. TRUCK & SPECIAL DELIVERY BY MARX.

Great pair of automotive toys from the 1920s vintage. A fairly large litho tin truck of American manufacture from the 1920s era. T.F.S Co., possibly standing for Ferdinand Strauss(?). Great litho, the truck has a seat cab with driver & a simulated box storage area with operational tailgate. Clockwork/windup mechanism intact & in functional working condition. The toy overall is very fine plus to near mint original condition. As is typical with these toys, slight variation in coloring on litho but not from fading, just the way it is. A great toy that is seldom found, especially in such noteworthy condition. Second toy being a Speed Boy 4 delivery motorcycle manufactured by Marx in the 1920s/30s era. This toy has wonderful lithograph as well, and for the most part, is in virtually unplayed with, very fine plus to near mint original condition.

CONDITION: As stated above for both. 1-14735 (750-950) – Lot 1059

1060

MARX AMOS & ANDY TAXI WITH OB.

The classic Amos & Andy taxi which for a child had tremendous play, action and appeal. Not only were the colors vibrant & attractive but the overall eccentric movement of the vehicle was quite a sight for the young child. Furthermore, the finely lithographed box depicting the lodge hall, their office, the bank, etc. was visually attractive. Included with the lot are various cutouts with Andy at his desk, the King Fish standing at the front door, Amos in his cab, and Amos standing with a tire on his shoulder. A black & white postcard is also supplied with this grouping along with an Amos & Andy Ginger Beer soda cap. Quite a grouping of ephemera to accompany this classic American tin toy. SIZE: Approx 8″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Box is very solid & intact and the vehicle itself is in very fine all-original condition. 1-14781 (500-700) – Lot 1060

1061

LARGE HAND PAINTED GERMAN TIN POOL PLAYER.

The classic large bodied gentleman standing at the end of the pool table shooting balls in procession as they emerge from the corkscrew ramp. A classic and perhaps the most desirable of the various pool players that were manufactured by various toy companies in the earlier part of the 20th century. The paint on the toy appears to be in very good plus original finish with no apparent repairs or repainting to this toy. Clockwork mechanism is in functional working order and a number of ball bearings, some of which appear to be original to the toy, are present. SIZE: Overall approx 12″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Very good plus. 1-14699 (700-900) – Lot 1061

Toy retains a significant amount of its original paint which is slightly dull from sitting on an open shelf for decades.

PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Toy is in very fine original condition. Minor solder repair on underside of toy to wheel which is hidden away and not visible. 1-14764 (800-1,200) – Lot 1062

Checker highlighting surrounds the fuselage of the vehicle with the Checker Cab logo litho’d on passenger doors. A nice vehicle with opening rear passenger compartment doors and spare tire mounted to the rear of cab. The smaller vehicle is normally found in black only, but this particular version is painted orange and black with again the checker striping going around the vehicle’s body.

DISTLER MOTORCYCLE WITH DUAL RIDERS AND SIDECAR WITH PASSENGER.

A very fine as well as rare 1930s motorcycle manufactured by Distler. A slight oddity worth mentioning is that the sidecar is actually on the left side of the motorcycle as opposed to the right side. Finely lithographed motorcycle and sidecar depicting the driver with a seated lady behind him and a young lady riding in the sidecar.

The paper wings are perhaps the most fragile part of this toy & they appear to be absolutely complete with no visible damage whatsoever!!

LEHMANN LILA & LOLO.

The classic Lehmann Hansen cab LILA depicting lady seated within, a dog perched on the front step of the cab, and the gentleman driver seated at the rear of the vehicle. A comical toy.

Mechanism is in working order, and if there was one complaint about this vehicle it would be the missing little flag attached to the radiator post.

PAIR OF BUB LIMOUSINES, ONE WITH ADVERTISING.

The smaller of the two is quite interesting as it has lithographed on the roof “O’Connor’s The Store That Sells Everything in Mahanoy City, PA”. This store was in the coal regions of Pennsylvania and obviously there was a select group of people that were fairly well to do.

A large 3-dimensional trolley operator stands on one platform, a reversible trolley pole and simulated lamps on either end.

Litho section is vibrant and very fine plus. 1-14736 (300-500) – Lot 1111

1112

THE POLITE CHAUFFEUR LIMOUSINE BY RI-CO.

Most likely this car is from the late teens/early 20s and comes with its original cardboard box, attributed to William Rissman Co. from Nuremburg, Germany. The ingenuity in designing a toy of this nature and how it works is just amazing. When the car is wound up it moves forward suddenly stopping and the chauffeur emerges from his door and assists the female passenger in the rear of the limousine, hence the name of the car “The Polite Chauffeur”. Overall typical 1920s lithography, the toy is in remarkable all-original condition, very fine plus, and has lithographed solid disk tires with a litho’d spare tire at the rear. Markings on the rear of the vehicle include “Made in Germany” and the Ri-Co trademark. Passenger compartment also has an opening and closing right side door as well. Oftentimes one would not think twice when first observing a toy like this, but when they see the action it can become a strong desire to own. Rarely does this toy surface to the market, let alone in its original box. Just a great toy. Original paper tag is still suspended to key wind mechanism by red string giving directions in German, English and French. SIZE: Approx 9-1/2″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above, minor wear most noticeable to where chauffeur’s door opens & closes. Box overall is fairly strong, one end flap missing on lid. 1-14779-1 (1,000-1,500) – Lot 1112

GUNTHERMAN #7 LIMOUSINE & GK VEHICLE.

Cast lead single lamp on front end with a number 7 emblazed upon the engine hood. Trademark Guntherman mark on either passenger compartment doors and roof of the vehicle has an arrow pointing forward. Once begins to wonder, since the roof slides off, if the passenger compartment could also have been used to contain candies or sweets for a child, and perhaps this vehicle was sold in a candy or sweet shop. Circa 1910, the vehicle has simulated spoked tires and a rear wind clockwork mechanism which is in functional working order. The litho is still quite bright & the gold shows very little signs of oxidation as well. Second vehicle, the G&K, with the driver himself holding a rod between his legs and actually gives the image that it is an Irish mail-type vehicle. Lithographed in an apple green with the GK trademark on either side, a unique vehicle that is seldom found. Overall condition very fine plus to near mint. SIZE: Approx 6-1/2″ & 4″ l respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above, the Guntherman vehicle has small minor corrosion at right left rear corner. 1-14631 (800-1,200) – Lot 1114

FOUR EARLY GERMAN TIN OPEN TOURING CARS.

The first pair, one slightly smaller than the other, the smallest features a chauffeur with two female passengers seated in the rear. The litho is bright & vibrant and the clockwork mechanism is intact & working. A charming size and a great go with for O gauge Markland layout. The second vehicle, slightly larger in size, but only having a chauffeur as opposed to passengers in the rear. It does however a simulated tin fold down roof. Mechanism is intact & functional. And again, the tin litho finish is vibrant & bright. Both cars are in very fine to near mint condition, some wear to front seat on edges where chauffeur sits(??). Both of these vehicles were possibly manufactured by Fisher. The third vehicle is rather interesting with an elongated motor hood section and a rare passenger compartment with a simulated tin fold down roof. Style of wheels is rather interesting & a similar version of this car is pictured in the book on p. 34 of Toy Autos 1890-1939 by The Peter Ottenheimer Collection. Litho’d in tin with highlighting, the overall condition is very good to fine with “shelf dust”. Clockwork mechanism intact & functional. Fourth vehicle is a Bing runabout roadster with an unusual finish., The frame is purple and the car body itself is also a slightly lightly purple with green & orange highlighting.

1121

PAIR OF RICHTER & CO. LIMOUSINES ALONG WITH A PAIR OF OTHER GERMAN TIN CARS.

A charming pair of finely lithographed German wind-up limousines circa 1910 manufactured by Richter & Co. Interesting trademarks on the rear passenger compartment doors as well as interesting lithography for the simulated rear windows and roofs as well. Although likely this manufacturer produced many toy vehicles, they are seldom found and more than likely these toys were produced in the same era but lithograph varied considerably. Both vehicles overall are in very good original finish. One limo lacking a cowl light and has some minor front roof edge chipping and minor crease as well. Third vehicle being a green and black sedan of an unknown manufacturer. Obviously many German manufacturers produced toys of this nature and this example is reminiscent of either a Bing or Orobr version. This particular vehicle is in very fine plus to near mint condition. The fourth vehicle is a dark blue and black 2-door coupe with simulated tin tires and a windup mechanism. It is obvious from handling this toy that although it is charming and well done it was tinny and inexpensive toy of the era. Of unknown manufacturer the toy has a good look and is in virtually to very fine plus to near mint condition. SIZE: Approx 5-3/4″, 5-3/4″, 6″, 6″ l respectively.

3 GERMAN TIN AUTOS.

Three interesting automobiles. The first being a G&K car with a seated lady in the rear. When the toy is wound it rolls along the floor. The lady in the rear actually lifts her right arm which contains a handful of flowers. Nicely lithographed in a light blue with white and red highlighting. Car also has simulated spoked wheels and trademark G&K symbol is on both rear doors. Overall condition is good, the car would benefit greatly with a good cleaning and polishing. The following two cars are of an unknown maker. Similar pictures are on p. 34-35 of the Ottenheimer Toy Auto Book on page 34. The larger of the two vehicles is a rear entrance torneau and the second vehicle is an open air limousine with a simulated rag top roof which is in a top down position. Mr. Soling often times would add additional seated figures to a vehicle when none were provided by the original manufacture, such as the case with this vehicle. Overall, condition is good to very good. Interior coloring has darken somewhat and perhaps a good polishing and cleaning would enhance the overall appealing of the toy. SIZE: Approx 6″, 7-1/2″ & 6-3/4″ l respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above. 1-14782 (700-900) – Lot 1122

1123

PAIR OF BOXED GERMAN TIN LOCOMOTIVES.

Of unknown manufacture, the first is referred to as the Rangir-Locomotive and depicts a lithographed train locomotive in very fine to near mint original condition with its original box (cardboard sides slightly crushed). The second toy, which is somewhat unusual, is a 240 American Outline locomotive but of German manufacture. Obviously this particular toy was produced with the American market in mind as the cow catcher on the front slips right off. More than likely this toy was intended for European use, but as the American market was far larger, the manufacturer added the cow catcher for appeal. Both locomotives have windup mechanisms which are in functional operational condition. SIZE: Approx 7″ and 10-1/2″ respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: Paper label on second locomotive has had significant loss, however most of the engine picture is still intact. This particular toy has years of “shelf dust” and would benefit by a light cleaning. Overall condition of this toy is very good plus. 1-14611 (250-350) – Lot 1123

DISTLER WINDUP MOTORCYCLE.

A classic Distler motorcycle in very fine to near mint original condition. As is typical of this motorcycle the exposed clockwork/windup mechanism sits at the left rear tire. The lithography is vibrant & bright, even the pony wheels still are vibrant, bright & shiny, and one wonders where the original box is for this toy. It appears that for display purposes, somebody has fabricated a headlight and attached it to the front forks of the motorcycle, as opposed to the small piece of tin that is normally there that rides on the front wheel. This bike is pictured on p. 28 of the book Motos-Jouets by F. Marchand. SIZE: Approx 7-3/4″ l. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling.

The bike is marked “Made in France” with the company logo and “Paris SFA” (Society of Fabrication and Assembly). A really scarce bike in exceptional all original condition with just minimal scuffs. Interestingly enough, the bike has no mechanism and was just a push toy. 2) Very detailed unit manufactured by Tipp. Front wheel is adjustable to control direction. Even more amazing is the original clear plastic windshield is riveted in place and is intact. Again, this is a very scarce bike and a great opportunity to find one in such great condition.

BOXED FRENCH FIRE BRIGADE TOY W/ KiCo FIRE ENGINE.

A charming french toy contained within its original colorful box. The initials W.P. & S. Excelsior Toys, is the probable manufacturer or distributor of this child’s toy. Four painted hollow tin french fireman, each holding different piece of fire apparatus in their hand and the hand-drawn hand painted, fire pumper would have made this a charming toy for a young boy to entertain himself. This toy still has the original rubber hose and nozzle in tact. Circa early part of the 20th Century this toy has many years of shelf dust, but overall is in very good plus overall condition. The penny toy sized fire engine has a clockwork mechanism contained with in, and when wound it would race along the floor.

GERMAN TRUCK WITH MILITARY FIGURES & MILITARY CYCLE.

The truck reminiscent of an Orobr vehicle has a German military driver and three German military figures sitting on a bench directly behind the cab. An interesting toy lithographed in orange with red highlighting and a black roof, this vehicle is not done in the sense of a military toy being gray or camouflage, and it appears that they used a regular commercial vehicle and dressed it up with military figures. Obviously a combination of pieces and parts by the toy manufacturer to appeal to the young fellow who was inclined to play with military toys. Windup mechanism in functional condition and overall condition very good to fine. The second toy is a military motorcycle of unknown vintage perhaps from he late 30’s to the early 40’s. The bike itself has a camouflage finish and the military figure is dressed in gray with matching cap. Windup mechanism in working order. Overall condition is very fine plus to near mint.

COON JIGGER/DAPPER DAN W/ ORIGINAL BOX AND HAND PAINTED WALKING BLACK DANDY.

A finely lithographed tin toy with somewhat overstated ethnic caricature on all four sides of the box. The dandy himself has brightly simulated clothing and when the toy is wound, he does a dance on top of the box. Marked on the underside is Dapper Dan Carter’s Coon Jigger by Louis Marx & Co. The toy is in functional working order and overall in very fine condition. Typical wear arms and legs would brush against body. Box lid itself shows no scratching but some alligatoring/oxidation to finish. The second toy, the black wind-up dandy is quite unique in that he is reminiscent of a French Martin toy. He has a tin body covered by cloth clothing, lead feet, and a two part tin painted head. When mechanism is wound and working, he does a wobbling body shifting from right to left. A bit of an oddity/rarity, this toy has quite a presence about it. SIZE: Approx 10″ t. and 8″ respectively. PROVENANCE: The Estate of Carol and Jerry Soling. CONDITION: As stated above the Dapper Dan box has had a tear across the front (mended with tape on interior). 1-14705 (600-800) – Lot 1131

1132

THREE SPARKLER TOYS.

Three German comical sparkler toys. Not being familiar with these pieces, they are quite intriguing and extremely well lithographed. They appear to be of German manufacture. One being a clown type figure holding a dog in each arm. The second figure almost reminiscent of a state magician or a gypsy with an earring in each ear. The third also either an actor or magician and possibly these two were famous caricatures from the 1920s.

PAIR OF PENNY TOY AIRPLANE TOYS.

The first being a Kellerman Airplane. The observatory of this toy is obvious of close examination. We have a large pilot on an open cockpit and seated behind him in the enclosed cabin are miniature passengers, along with right and left staircases descending from the cabin door. I suppose a child playing with this toy, these issues would not be of interest or perhaps he would not even observe them. The second toy is an amusing mechanical toy, by depressing the center support, both planes would be lowered toward the base in a spring-loaded action, that would then push the support upwards and the planes would fly about in a counter-clockwise circle. Both toys are a bit dusty from sitting on the shelf for a few years and would benefit greatly from a light cleaning and polishing. SIZE: Approx 4-1/2″ l and 7″ t respectively.

PATRIOTIC WARTIME “BUY AMERICAN” BALL DROP GAME.

Unfamiliar with this particular machine, it has an Art Deco style cabinet yet obviously the theme was 1940s with the Buy American, the eagle on the front, and “American Business”. Premise is the same as the Kicker Catcher, the coin was deposited,. lever on left side of machine would raise ball to opening at top, and cascade down a series of pins & nails. The object was to move the star & catch the ball and accumulate points. Typical nonsense claiming the machine was for amusement only, no gambling. Scores ranged from 100-1000 points depending on how many balls were caught. A professional high grade, high gloss restoration to the cabinet. Machine is in functional working order, and the interior play field appears to be in remarkable original condition. No indication as to maker. SIZE: Approx 16″ w x 19-1/2″ t.

Machine was probably restored 20-30 years ago and has a nice look about it. Most likely marquee casting is of newer vintage.

Great original decals & paper labels within the globe.

FINE TURN OF LAST CENTURY FELT STEIFF SOLDIER DOLL WITH ID.

This is a wonderful example of Steiff’s early five ways jointed military-themed dolls. Except for his boots and accessories, he is made entirely from felt. His head and hands are made from flesh colored felt while his uniform and hat, which are integral to his body, are made from blue, red, and light blue felt. His center seamed face is detailed with tiny black shoebutton eyes, pink rosy cheeks, and a brown painted mustache, eyebrows, and nostrils. His hair is indicated by brown airbrushing on his sideburn areas and the back of his head. Soldier’s uniform consists of a matching top coat, hat, and pants. The hat is trimmed in felt and has two decorative felt circles on it. The coat, which has faded a bit, has decorative buttons and trim on the cuffs; a few buttons have been lost to time. The pants are simple and detailed with red stitching. Soldier has oilcloth shoes, a large white leather belt, and a ceremonial sabre. The doll retains his tiny trailing F style button as his Steiff ID. Steiff made many similar styled soldiers; this one is most likely “Dragoon” who was manufactured in 28 and 35 cm from 1909-1918 overall. SIZE: 11″ h. PROVENANCE: From a fine collection. CONDITION: As noted. Coat with a few spots and small ding in sole of felt boot. Otherwise very good. 1-14591 (1,000-1,500) – Lot 1372

Additional information: Great news! This doll comes with original box.

RARE AND LOVELY STEIFF PRESSED FELT FACED DOLL.

Here is an exceptional example of Steiff’s “pressed felt” face dolls. This is Irmgard, who is standing, five ways (head, legs and arms) jointed, excelsior stuffed, and made entirely from flesh colored felt. Her arms hang loosely by her sides. Her arms are bent slightly at the elbows, and she has very defined fingers. Her face is highly textured, with chubby cheeks, a realistic mouth, pert nose, and lifelike glass eyes embedded in eye sockets. Even her little ears are sculpted just like a child’s. She is finished with a blond mohair wig, which is seamlessly integrated into her head structure. Like all of Steiff’s pressed felt dolls of the time, Irmgard is dressed to the nines. She sports white underwear, a white blouse, and a red, white, and blue cotton dress. Her footwear also is removable and consists of white socks and red felt Mary-Jane style shoes. And the crown of her outfit must be her red and blue felt bonnet, which is trimmed with a red ribbon. The doll retains her red imprinted and early chest tag, red rubber ID bracelet, and US Zone tag as her Steiff IDs. This doll was produced overall from 1939-1941 and then again from 1949-1950; her combination of IDs suggests that she was made in the later time frame. SIZE: 12″ h. PROVENANCE: From a fine collection. CONDITION: A few very tiny holes and divots in unobtrusive places, otherwise very good. 1-14592 (1,000-1,500) – Lot 1373

REMARKABLE STEIFF RABBIETTE DOLL WITH ALL AND ORIGINAL IDS.

This “tall drink of water” is Rabbiette. She has a mohair rabbit head; long, soft unjointed dangling limbs; and mohair hands and paws. Her body, arms, and legs are made from velvet, which has faded over time. She has glass, very large black and brown pupil eyes and embroidered claws, nose, and mouth. Rabbiette is one of a series of long limbed lovelies in the Steiff catalog from 1927-1932. These “play and car dolls” included Bulliette, the bulldog, and Fluffiette, the cat, among others. These were based on the most popular named Steiff characters of the time. Each had the head of the character, mohair paws and feet, and dangling velvet limbs. Most were available in several bright, happy “jelly bean” colors and in 20, 30, and 43 cm, with the larger sizes having a squeaker. It has been suggested that the design of this series was based on a similar line from the Chad Valley Toy Company of England called “Tango Toys.” Rabbiette has all of her Steiff IDs including her most exceptional metal rimmed chest tag, long trailing F button, and red ear tag. SIZE: 8″ h. PROVENANCE: From a fine collection. CONDITION: As noted, a few light stains and discolorations on the velvet; mohair slightly dusty and thinning; otherwise very good. 1-14600 (800-1,200) – Lot 1374
