  • Description
    Very nice condition all tin, vintage wind up toy by J. Chein Company, New York City, circa 1950, "Boy Skier"; in all original paint and lithography; in colors of orange scarf, blue trousers, red shirt, and flesh tones to the face with reddish rosy cheeks.. Works great, gear driven; operates by winding up the attached clockwork key on the left side of the skier and release on an open wood floor and watch him go (see video accompanying the listing). He moves arms and poles back and forth as if skiing; wheels underneath actually propel him.

    The J. Chein logo appears at the bottom and rear of the right leg validating the maker and American
    manufacture (see image).
