Lehmann's The Balky Mule
with original box

ITEM 5583

  • Early Lehmann wind-up toy in fine working condition with original box

  • Circus clown pitches forward and back in his cart as mule kicks and balks

  • Lithographed tin cart has wonderful circus graphics in fine condition as is the felt covered mule

  • Clown has some wear to painted face and cloth suit is intact but delicate

  • Toy is overall 8" long with built-in key

  • Original box has been restored to good condition and shrink-wrapped to prevent further wear

  • Lehmann produced the Balky Mule beginning in 1897. This example probably dates to the period just after the German patent was issued in 1907, as D-R Patent is printed on the cart. Later versions of the toy no longer reference patents. The wheel illustrations are the early version as well.
