Prewar tin clockwork Poor Pete toy by Gunthermann of Germany. When wound, the young black child frantically waddles around while the dog is nipping at his behind (see video below).This is the version of the toy without a watermelon (the other version is nearly identical except the boy has a piece of watermelon between his hands). This is one of the gunthermann toys that had both litho on the tin and also hand painted touchups made at the factory (see the photosyou can tell the parts that are litho and the parts that are factory touchups). 6.5 tall and 3.5 long.
Very good original condition with only minor losses commensurate with age and light play (see photos). The areas that look like overpaint or touchups are actually factory touchups done when the toy was originally manufactured i. These touchups are original and not done later.
The clockwork mechanism works (see video). This is the version with no watermelon. See a video of this item. Important Please Read - Other Items Listed.
