Fischer baby carriage made in Germany

We are pleased to offer for your consideration a wonderful and rare G. Fisher penny toy doll carriage.  This tiny toy is made of tin plate with a lithograph paint finish.  It is not signed but we found the toy listed in the book "The Book of Penny Toys" by David Pressland page 92 (see our last photo showing the page from the book and this carriage in the upper left corner). According to the book the carriage is made by G. Fisher in Nuremburg Germany prior to 1914 and again in the 1920's and two different versions of doll carriages were made, this straight bottom version that we are offering and the more often found curved bottom version.  Each version used a different paint scheme on its’ doll (the one shown in the book is from the more common version on the upper right of the page).  The carriage we are offering has the correct original pivoting tin doll in it. The paint finish on the toy is in fantastic condition with only very minor litho loss, mostly on the wheels, a bit of missing paint on the doll’s neck, and a few small scattered scratches on the rest of the toy.  The tin bottom plate on the carriage has a spoke wheel pattern printed on it as you can see in our next to last photo.  This apparent mismatch is an excellent example of the manufacturer’s frugal use of tin plate to lower the cost of manufacturing.  This antique carriage measures approximately 3 1/4" in length including the handle (just over 2 ¾” without the handle) and just over 1" wide at the axles and the blanket. Although the carriage was manufactured as a tin penny toy, it is also fairly close to 1:12 scale (not quite large enough to be considered true 1:12 scale) and would certainly dress up any dollhouse nursery. This wonderful rare tin penny toy is in great condition and worthy of any first class toy collection.
