This is a very interesting and very very rare Cast Iron Toy. It is in the form of a black man and is made of cast iron and wood. The arms legs and head are mounted to a block of wood underneath the clothing. The clothing appear to be original and are tattered from age. The arms move up and down in the mans hand appears to be outstretched as if waiting to receive something.
The legs hang on a pin or rod that goes through the block of wood and do come off as the holes that they hang on are worn from age. This is a very Interesting and unique item would make an outstanding part to any collection. Possibly part of an old mechanical game?
