We are pleased to offer for your consideration a truly rare and wonderful Schoenhut Humpty Dumpty Reduced Size Circus Set no. 21/37 in the Original Box. This rare and early “Small Size” Schoenhut Humpty Dumpty Circus was first announced in the 1918 Schoenhut catalog, the first year that Schoenhut made the reduced size toys. This beautiful reduced size circus set is in exceptional all original condition. This set has all of the pieces shown in the picture on the small label on the end of the box that shows the contents of the set. The box top has a fantastic large SCHOENHUT CIRCUS label show and a smaller contents label on the end of the box top. The figures in the circus are all in beautiful condition with scattered areas of minor loss to the original paint (please view & enlarge all photos). All of the animal’s and the clown’s leather ears are present. All of the figures have been restrung and they all pose properly. The Ringmaster has a bit of moth damage mostly on the back his red felt coat. The Lady Rider has a moth hole in her green top and her petty coat. There is a single drop stain on her skirt and what we believe to be a manufacturer’s defect in a complete split of her right foot (you can see a bit of the original paint inside the split). Her foot is solid and works fine as is or it could be easily repaired. The Humpty Dumpty paper label on the front of the base is gone, however, both of the side labels are present and in very good shape. The canvas tent is in spectacular condition and all of the wood and wire supports are all in great shape too. The acrobat rings and bar are both present and in great condition, and are suspended in the center of the tent. The flags and banners do have some crease wear loss of color, but are all present. The original brass grommet is still in place at the top of the tent. There is some minor staining on the tent where the steel support rod passes through the hem over the lettering and also around the grommet at the top (please see last photo). When these tents are set up they were intended to be tacked to the perimeter of the blue base and as a result often these sets have multiple holes in the box from attaching the tent to the base over and over, but not so with this tent. This tent has only been tacked to the base once and all of the tacks are in place and the tent is firmly attached. The base has some very minor paint loss here and there on the edges and there is a small 1” split at the left front corner. The colorful label on the front of the original box is frame worthy, a bit dirty but it is grand. The box lid is in great shape with the corners having been reinforced from inside (very neatly done). There is also one additional small 2” x 1” repair to the inside of the box. The cardboard box lid measures 24 ¼” by 18 ¼” by 2 7/8” and the blue wooden base measures 24” x 18” x 2 3/4”. The tent stands 26” tall without the flag and 31” tall with it in place. This truly rare and wonderful Schoenhut Small Size Circus Tent set No. 21/37 in the original box will absolutely amaze and delight the Schoenhut Collector on your Christmas or holiday list!  PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES FOR THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF THIS WONDERFUL EARLY SCHOENHUT BOXED CIRCUS SET.
