MARX Tin Rollover Plane 1920
MARX Tin Rollover Plane 1920, these planes are part of a series called the Rollover plane. The monoplane is lithographed in red and carries a passenger. The plane is meant to be wound up and then when on its own will move about and roll over. It appears in generally good condition with some war and scratching but is slow on the roll. Plane still has the turnkey and wheels.
This plane is lots of fun for the collector, in great condition and is wonderful for display. Marked MARX Toys, Made in USA, New York, N.Y

Provenance: -Five Brothers Rare Toy Estate, The core of the collection was actually established in the 1950s by the father (from Indiana) of the adult sons who are consignors to the May sale. As time went on, each of the five brothers set out on his own individual collecting path. Each took a different approach to building his collection, but the one important thing they had in common was a love of vintage American toys, primarily of the boomer era. The time-span for the toys is heavily focused on the 1950s and 60s, with a few from the 1970s.
