  • Details
    FOR SALE ☞ ONO Toy Japan Wind-Up Tin and Celluloid Carousel * Very Rare

    DESCRIPTION ☞ This very rare tin and celluloid wind-up carousel was made by the ONO toy corp. in Japan. It features a very bright and vibrant hand painted base with a celluloid dog sitting perched and girl riding a pony. The base has several different birds and animals painted on it, as well as some scenes from what appears to be a market, a carnival fair and country scene on the center. When wound up, celluloid balls and discs spin around and toy makes bell sounds similar to an old slot-machine. Please see video of toy in action -- sorry Etsy won't let us play the sound on video. This piece is very well made, rare and unique!

    DIMENSIONS & WEIGHT ☞ Approx : L 5 inch H 5 inch H 8 inch

    CONDITION ☞ This unique Japanese tin toy is in excellent shape. However, one of the celluloid discs is missing (see last photo). Aside from that minor missing piece, the toy shows very little signs of use. Toy winds-up and works perfectly. Only a few cranks and it will go for a long while at top speed. All of the paint is bright with no fading from the sun. All of the writing on the carousel is in Japanese, aside from the ONO diamond and Made in Japan. Please see photos. Color may differ slightly in real life from how it appears on your screen due to varying monitor settings. Have a question about this item or want to see more photos?
