(Lionel, 1934) A vintage Mickey Mouse Hand Car No. 1100 wind-up toy manufactured by Lionel Trains. The popularity of this train toy is credited with saving the Lionel Corporation from catastrophe during the height of the Great Depression. The toy features composition figures of Mickey and Minnie affixed to either side of a metal railroad handcar. When wound with a key (not included), Mickey and Minnie's arms move up and down on the control lever as the wheels turn and a bell rings. The hand car is designed to travel over metal train tracks, and one such track segment is included. The internal mechanism will require service to restore functionality. Mickey and Minnie's legs have been professionally replaced and Minnie's tail reattached. Mickey's head has come unscrewed. The original illustrated cardboard box is included. Measuring 5.25"x7.5" and 2" deep, the hand car is in good condition with paint scratching and chipping, adhesive remnants from the leg repair, and patina to the metal components. The track segment measures 2"x9" and exhibits minor oxidation. The box is 8.5"x11.25" and 2.25" deep with some color fading, edge and corner wear, surface creasing, and soiling to the interior of the base.
