Hess Toys was founded in 1826 by Matthias Hess in Nuremberg, Germany. They are recognized as one of the first toy manufacturers.

In 1886, Matthias’ son John Leonard took over management of the toy company, and then later fully inherited it in 1906.




Good overall condition, and nice for display. Body retains most of its original lithographing. Shows some moderate scratching and mild loss, along with some moderate scattered oxidation. Side doors are original with a couple of small paint touch ups. Flywheel gear is not catching, mechanism complete just needs some TLC if one wants it to drive.
