15 . Baby's Rattle
Lithographed tin trumpeter riding a horse on wheeled green platform. While the right side of the toy is normal the left side has some historically significant factory flaws; the lithography is several centimeters off,as is a die-cut gap meant to be between chin,arm and trumpet as clearly seen on the right side,indicating proof that the order of construction is lithography,then die-cut,then joining. Green wheeled base bears "horse and cart" insignia,and lithographed saddle blanket bears "M" of Meier as well as "Made in Germany". Excellent condition aside from original factory flaw. 2 1/2".
