DARLING LITTLE GIRL AND HER PULL TOY IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA

This carte de visite gives center stage to a most adorable little girl. She is standing next to her pull toy, a very detailed jockey and horse. Note the horses realistic looking mane. The toy is on wheels. This photograph was taken at a photo studio belonging to C. G. Springer. Since Mr Springer owned  multiple studios, it is uncertain as to which particular location was the producer of this image. All three of Springer’s studios were in Czechoslavokia (Reichenberg, Teplitz, and Trautenau). This cdv photograph is in very good condition (see scans).  (SOLD)

 

ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL AND HER FANTASTIC PULL TOYS

This vintage real photo postcard features an adorable short haired little girl posing between two pull toy animals. The toy elephant and lamb are larger than most pull toys I have seen in other vintage photographs. Note the girl’s piercing eyes. The history of pull toys is interesting, It is believed that the earliest wooden toys appeared sometime during the Stone Age.Wooden toys were produced during the Middle Ages and were manufactured by industry in the 1800’s, especially in Europe. Steiff was a manufacturer of pull-alongs. The toys were described in advertising as “High Class Riding animals”. In 1880, Margarete Steiff, a German seamstress, founded the stuffed animal company that bears her name. Interestingly, a bout of polio limited her sewing to using just one hand. Her nephew created the first soft bear for his Aunt. When an American wholesaler saw the bear at the Leipzig Toy Fair in 1903, he ordered three thousand of them. By the time of World War I, Steiff had sold millions of these toys in Europe and the United States. Perhaps the toys in this photo postcard were made by Steiff. Producers of early pull toys included Fisher Price and Lego. This photo postcard was produced by the Foto Luz studio, located in Bucharest, Romania. The studio’s name is embossed on the lower right hand corner of this scallop edged postcard. The postcard is from the 1940’s and is in excellent condition.

A YOUNG BOY AND HIS PULL-TOY DOG

A cute little boy poses with his pull-toy dog. He is very dressed up for his portrait. Note his large bow tie and his cute cap. The photographer and the location of the photographic studio are unknown. The photographer’s creativity, in regard to his choice of background and props, is very uninspiring.
