Rare! CELLULOID POPEYE 1929 Japanese clockwork vintage toy figure
1929 Painted celluloid and wind-up mechanism. Manufactured in Japan Height approx 7.5 inches. This wonderful little figure stands smoking a pipe, when in working condition the clockwork mechanism operates the head which winds up and down, and the whole figure vibrates and the arms articulate to swing forward and back. The celluloid figure is in original (non restored) condition with hand applied colours, the "wind up" mechanism is free moving and not seized. The figure is offered as "not working" and the condition is shown in the images provided. It has become separated in two parts at the original assembly join. As you can see in the images POPEYE still looks very good despite this, I have refrained. From repairing the figure in order to offer him as.
