THANK YOU & GOOD LUCK. By the John Harper & Co. Appears to be the original paint in excellent condition. You folks can make the call. This does have the blue butterfly tie.
The mechanics all work nicely. Tongue retreats and eyes roll back into the head. The front mold is marked MADE IN ENGLAND 2. The back mold is marked 1, and the cross member from lever to arm is marked 4. It measures in at approx.
6 1/2" tall x 5 1/8" wide x 6 1/4 deep. 4 3/4" long x 3 1/4" wide. The piece appears to be in overall excellent original condition.
Compare the condition to this one at worthpoint. The majority of items I sell are used. They come to me from estates, auctions, tag sales, etc. Nothing is new & perfect, and if it is, I still won't say it. Please see pics for condition.
