Vintage handmade wood pull toy, plant stand
Hummingbear Vintage features unique (often whimsical) vintage and antique decorative items from various parts of the world.
This is a sweet, handmade wooden toy wagon, circa 1930. It measures approximately 9.5" long x 5.5" wide x 2.75". The cart has its original hardware and chippy, cream and olive-green paint. It also retains its four original wooden wheels, and a hemp or twine rope for pulling. There are holes in the top of the platform, some still containing wood, which suggests that maybe there was once a roof on the wagon or perhaps a cage for a child's toy animals!
The little trolly has lost much of its original paint but has aged beautifully to develop a lovely mottled patina. One of the wheels has a crack on the side but overall the toy remains very solid with no visible breaks or repairs. There is surface wear and dirt but I think the piece looks perfect the way it is so I didn't clean it! (See photos for best understanding of condition.)
This toy would make a charming accent piece especially in a cottage/country home or on a porch or patio. It is a perfect stand for displaying small potted plants, decorative items, or seasonal ornaments and would be a unique gift for any gardener or collector of primitive or folk art.
