(Louis Marx, 1939) A vintage tin lithographic Wise Pluto wind-up toy manufactured by Louis Marx & Co. When the integral key in the side of the figure is wound, three wheels in the base turn, causing Pluto to roll in a winding fashion. The mechanicals are in working order, however, a chunk of rubber is missing from one of the rear wheels, which prevents Pluto from moving fluidly. The toy retains its original cardboard box packaging. The box measures 3"x8.25" and 3" deep and is in good condition. An interior flap and a portion of the outer side flap are missing, and a vintage "Fragile" sticker is adhered to a side panel. Measuring 2.5" tall, 8" long, and 2.75" wide, the toy is in very good condition with some surface scratches and chips.
