(Marx, 1939) A vintage Pinocchio the Acrobat wind-up toy manufactured by Marx. An articulated tin lithographic Pinocchio figure attaches to the base with a flat metal band. When the integral key in the base is wound, the seesaw bar moves up and down, causing the base to rock and the Pinocchio figure to swing and flip. The mechanism can be manually made to operate, but would require service to restore full functionality. Measuring 15"x11.25" and 2.25" deep, the wind-up toy is in very good condition. The colors remain vibrant with only occasional surface scratches and chips. The key exhibits minor oxidation.
