Very first Robby the Robot made. By the Nomura toy company of Japan in 1957. From original movie Forbidden Planet is arguably the best science fiction movie of the 1950’s. In the era of The Cold War, fears were materialized in mutated, giant insects, monsters or alien invaders! Robby is the Icon of any decent tin toy robot collector.
The Boyce Moto Meter Company was issued 1st patent in 1912 for a radiator cap that incorporated a thermometer that was visible to the driver with a sensor that measured the heat of the water vapor.
Vintage wood puzzle toys made in Germany 1940’s . The first jigsaw puzzle was produced around 1760 by John Spilsbury, a London engraver and mapmaker. Spilsbury mounted one of his maps on a sheet of hardwood and cut around the border. The Golden Age of jigsaw puzzles came in the 1920s and 1940s with companies producing a wide range of puzzles reflecting both the desire for sentimental scenes. These are very rare hard to find!
Whimsical taxidermy dates back to many centuries. It was at one time considered a lost art form and has picked up of the past years. The most famous of all Whimsical taxidermy is the famous Jack O Lope. This piece in very unique and standing tall on two legs and has double barrel shotgun and holding a bird. He has great bloodshot eyes, very fun piece.
The symbol that captures the Halloween spirit is the jack-o’-lantern, or carved pumpkin. Some of the earliest jack-o’-lanterns were made in Germany of composition or pressed paper. This one is in great shape. There are plenty of collectors around the world for holiday and Halloween items.
