You can only realize too late why the cat was on top of the fridge when you notice how smooth the butter is. (Peter Delaney).
Pieper and I are so happy at our new home, Bonanzle, selling our handmade items and other treasures that we have picked up here and there. Bonanzle is a wonderful place for sellers, as well as buyers, our wares are "everything but the ordinary." We currently have over 18,000 members!
Today, I'd like to feature: Midwest Emporium! They sell one of a kind new, used, vintage and antique products. The item pictured above is Marx U.S. Army Tank #3 Wind Up Toy Vintage. Two pair of movable machine guns mounted on top. Great graphics in avocado, orange, yellow, and black.
Measures 5 inches high X 7 3/4 inches long X 3 1/2 inches wide.
This Marx Windup Toy U. S. Army Tank #3 has some scratches & couple of tiny dents. Very little paint loss.
Windup works - tank rolls when wound and lever is released. Although the machine guns were supposed to make sparks when the tank is operational, the abrasive is worn off and it no longer sparks.
Very nice example of a Louis Marx toy. If you don't have one of these in your collection, this is a nice one.
Midwest Emporium carries some of the most amazing china and collectible glassware that I have seen...and at VERY reasonable prices.
