Antique 1920’s Dent Lead Slush Cast Mold Toonerville Trolley Toy 3.5″ Ornament
I am pleased to offer a rare Toonerville Trolley toy by Dent.
This piece measures 3-1/2″ X 3-1/4″ and is of slush mold hand painted lead. Dates to the 1920’s.
Toonerville Folks was a popular newspaper cartoon feature by Fontaine Fox, which had a long run from 1908 to 1955. It began in 1908 in the Chicago Post and by 1913 it was syndicated nationally by the Wheeler Syndicate.
The single-panel gag cartoon was a daily look at Toonerville, situated in what are now called the suburbs. Central to the strip was the rickety little trolley called the “Toonerville Trolley” driven in a frenzy by the grizzly old Skipper.
Rare item displays very well and would make a fine addition to any collection.
