Vintage c. 1926 Marx Somstepa Jigger Dancer Tin Wind Up Toy Black Americana


  • I am pleased to offer this Antique 1926 Marx Wind Up Toy! 
  • This is a great early piece of Marx Black Americana! 
  • The toy features brightly lithographed tin construction, fixed wind mechanism, and stop/go lever. 
  • The man wear a yellow/orange suit and is attached to a pole that move him up/down, causing his limbs to flail and dance around. 
  • The base has little children playing by a river, and reads “Somstepa C*** Jigger”. 
  • One side has a large Marx Trademark, and the underside has the title and trademark as well.
  • Measures approx. 8″ Tall x 4″ W x 3″ Deep



The paint on the arms, legs and sides of the base show heavy crazing to the litho. There is some light scratching to the paint on the body, as well as the edges/underside of the base. The wind mechanism is strong, and when wound it functions as intended. Start / Stop lever functions, but is a bit loose.
