Boy and His Toy Fire Chief Pedal Car

Boy and his toy Fire Chief Pedal Car

Two 1930's-1950's snapshot photos showing a young kid in two different poses sitting in his toy steel Fire Chief pedal car. I am not very good at dating pedal cars so I have given a safe range that I feel the pedal car dates within. The photos measure 5 1/16" long by 3 1/2" wide.

Brothers with Christmas Presents: Pedal Car, Blocks, Train, Squeeze Toy

Brothers with Christmas Presents

This pleasing snapshot photo shows two brothers riding in a fresh mint condition pedal car. They might be twins as they appear to be the same size and age and they look alike. On the running board of the car sits a rubber squeeze toy in the shape of the Old Woman In The Shoe. On the floor closest to the viewer part of a baseball glove and part of a pair of boxing gloves are shown.

There is a cast iron pull toy train and a set of paper on wood blocks behind the gloves. Behind the cast iron train is a sheet steel friction toy train with engine, coal car, and one passenger car. All of the toys are in fresh bright mint condition. It must be Christmas for these two brothers since all of the toys are mint condition & there is a stocking hanging up in the background on the side of a fireplace.

We are estimating that this photo is circa 1914-1923 or so. The photo measures 4 3/16" by 3 1/2". There are no markings on the back. There is one tiny speck of wear at the right border and there is a little surface wear to the right top corner tip. Otherwise the photo is in superb fresh and sharp condition.

Early 1900'S Cabinet Photo Child with Toy Cat Candy Container

Impressed into the lower right of the mat is the photographer's mark which is difficult to make out but as best as I can tell it is, "Stofflet, Easton, PA."

Kid Holding Lehmann Tin Toy Car CDV Photo circa 1910

Kid Holding Lehmann Tin Toy Car CDV Photo circa 1910

Original cdv photo showing a kid holding a tin toy car made in Germany by the Lehmann Toy Co. We would estimate that this photo is circa 1910 or so. This is a very fine silver bromide photograph of superb quality & exceptional contrast.

It is interesting to note that wheels are missing from the toy car. This is a bit unusual as normally when kids are shown holding toys in early photos the toys are in mint or near mint/excellent condition. So, in this case, we do not know if this kid ripped the wheels off of the toy? Or was this a hand me down from a sibling who removed the wheels?

The photographer's marking on the bottom front edge is "Kurt Schroeder Mittneida." This photo is most probably from Germany. But, we are not certain. The cdv measures 4 1/8" by 2 9/16". The photo is in superb fresh condition. The precise condition is shown in the pics.

RPPC Early Full Sized Car and Toy Car Side by Side

Early twentieth century black and white postally unused postcard that shows a full size early car and a similar looking toy car that is placed amusingly next to the big car so that they are a study in contrast in size. Some of the people in the car look down over the passenger side doors at the little toy car. The tin toy car in the image is a German litho tin windup limousine with a chauffeur driver. We're not certain of the maker but it could possibly have been made by Bing. An enlargement of the detail with the toy car is shown below.

CDV Photo Kids with Caged Bird Automaton, Candy Container

CDV Photo Kids with Caged Bird Automaton, Candy Container

This pleasing circa 1890's-1905 or so cdv black & white silver print photograph shows three kids.

Enlarged detail of cdv of children with automaton bird in cageThe older kid of the three, which is an astonishingly beautiful girl, sits on a chair. She holds on her lap a fine quality German clockwork mechanical automaton bird in a cage toy. When wound the bird would move while chirping pleasing sounds. In front of her on the rug is a wooden toy boat. The two younger kids sit on the floor on a rug.

One kid has something laying on their lap that we cannot figure out exactly. But, it appears that it may possibly be a somewhat squashed fur covered animal of some sort. Between the two kids sits a paper mache German candy container toy rabbit. The photo which is of German origin is marked on the front & the back "Ludwig Mertens Photogr. Anstalt Rendsburg Am Gynasium." A closeup photo of the automaton is shown below.

The back design of the card is a beautiful art nouveau standing woman. Marked at the bottom right back corner of the card are the printer's initials "L. G. K. & S." Just to the right are the initials of the designer "F.S.T." These three letters connect across the top forming an insignia.

This back design seems so well done that it may well have been the work of some famous art nouveau designer. The photo is in excellent condition. The cdv measures 4 1/32" by 2 1/2". The pics show the photo clearly.

CDV Photo of Girl with Popcorn Popper, Headless Doll, and Broom

CDV Photo of Girl with Popcorn Popper, Headless Doll, and Broom

Circa 1870's-1880's cdv photo measures 4 1/16" by 2 15/32". The photo shows a young girl with a popcorn popper, a broom, and two dolls. One of the china head dolls slumps over her arm. The other doll sits on her lap & lays against her chest. The second doll has had it's head broken off. The doll is of a type which has a shoulder plate so the head is broken away & detached from the shoulder plate. Sitting on the side of her lap is a broom. There are some other objects also but we can't make out what they are.

Enlargement of middle of image.

It is very unusual to see a broom in a cdv photo with a child. It is, even more so, extremely unusual to see a popcorn popper in a cdv. In over 40 years of buying & selling photos this is only the second popcorn popper that we have ever seen in a cdv photo.

This is the first cdv that we have ever seen that shows a popcorn popper being held by a kid. Additionally, this is a particularly rare & unusual combination for a kid to be holding two dolls (one without its head) as well as the popcorn popper.

It is quite rare to see a kid holding a doll with the head broken off. We cannot recall ever having owned another cdv showing a doll with the head detached. So, with all of these factors combined, this is a truly rare & interesting cdv photo!!!

The photographer's mark is at the front bottom of the mat "Chas. H. Pease, Goshen, Ind." At the bottom front border under the photographer's marking were penciled, in period, the words "Santa Claus Jr.". There was, in period, trim performed to the top border & top corners to expedite album insertion. The card has light soiling & an ink squiggle on the back. The precise condition is evident in the photos.

Japanese Toy Shop Albumen Photo with Hundreds of Dolls c. 1910

Japanese Toy Shop Albumen Photo with Hundreds of Dolls c. 1910

Original albumen sepia tone photo showing an early Japanese "Toy Shop". The photo is labeled "Toy Shop" at the bottom right corner in the negative. The photo shows three women sitting in a shop which has all sorts of toys & assorted items for sale. It is a small shop. But, there are many hundreds of items including piles of toys & dolls.

There are way too many items in all categories to even think about counting them. These women were really maxing out big time on their display space! We would date this photo circa 1890's-1910 or so.

The photo retains its original green cloth Japanese backing. The photo is lightly attached to the green cloth at the top back edge. The photo measures 5 3/8" by 3 5/8". The condition is shown in the pics. A very fascinating photo.
