20" (51 cm.) overall l. Standing upon a wheeled wooden platform are two dappled wooden horses with glass eyes that are pulling a wooden show wagon with flat-top upon which are displayed three side-show persons. The wagon, with original red painted and gilt decorations, is embossed Humpty Dumpty on the side and has raised designs of a chariot and man on horse. The detachable figures include Foxy Grandpa, Jockey and Baby, each with distinctively-modeled face, hand-painted facial features and hair or cap. Condition: generally excellent, original finish overall is well-preserved with few paint rubs on cap of Jockey. Comments: Schoenhut, the Show Wagon from Humpty Dumpty's Circus, circa 1909. Value Points: the extremely rare show wagon is well-preserved and includes the three original character figures with original costumes. Few complete examples are known to exist of this rare piece.
