This March, the Antique Toy Collection Auction will be presented by Lewis & Maese Antiques & Auctions. As suggested by the name, the sale will include a collection of antique toys, including a Steiff store display automaton. This automaton depicts animals such as a monkey, rabbit, and 14 other creatures. The movements of the toy are described by Invaluable: “The Rabbit potter works the rotating potter’s wheel as the monkey associate kneads the clay… the upper monkey stokes the kiln fire as the kiln opens and closes.”
Another available lot is an antique wooden toy carousel. The piece was hand-carved and hand-painted by an Italian immigrant. Flickering Christmas lights, moving animals, and music when switched on are some of the features. In addition, a 1930s Lionel Blue Comet train set will be offered. Created around 1937-39, this piece is said to be the latest version of the Blue Comet set with light blue paint. To browse the full catalog, visit Invaluable.
