Founded by Louis and David Marx in New York City, Louis Marx and Company was an American toy manufacturer in operation from 1919 to 1980. The brand produced a wide range of dollhouses, cars and trains, toy soldiers, action figures, and mechanical tin toys. Their lithographed tin windup toys earned particularly wide recognition. A tin lithograph walking wind-up toy from Louis Marx and Company is offered in the upcoming Gerritt & Shirley Breininger Western Toy Collection sale, presented by Pook & Pook.
Other top items include a set of eight spun cotton Christmas ornaments. The set includes a Santa Claus holding firewood, a girl in a crêpe paper dress, a child standing on a snowball, a fisherman, a dancing girl, and more. A musical clockwork lithograph toy is also on offer. The lot depicts an animated banjo player seated on a checkerboard stage. Completing the sale is a Gong Bell cast iron toy of a clown on a pig and a Mickey Mouse handcar from Lionel. Find more information and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
