    Toy Noah’s Arks for children to play with were very popular in the late 19th century, and Germany was very prolific in their production.

The ark is hand painted in attractive colors of red, pale yellow, and green, along with multi-colored hand painted animals. The ark is wooden and the animals are hand carved. Condition is excellent.
