Scarce Lehmann (Germany) No.651 Clockwork tinplate Zeppelin EPL1 c.1907 in Working Condition. Sn 12985 - 12985

This is a scarce early (C1907) clockwork tinplate Zeppelin toy with gilt effect finish, red rear propeller, which includes the original key, hanging cradles and on/off stitch. Founded in 1881 in Brandenburg, Germany by Ernst Paul Lehmann, the Lehmann Company is renowned for its detailed and brightly lithographed mechanical tin toys. Lehmann began to see great success in the early 20th century when its sophisticated, lightweight tin toys were recognized as innovations next to the blocky iron toys of most other makers. One of Lehmann’s advances was the patenting of the locking mechanism for clockwork motors. The Zeppelin is lithographed tinplate which has a gilt effect finished and has "EFL1 651 Marke Lehman" on both sides along with "Made In Germany D.R. Patente" on the bottom in black paint. Underneath, at the front it has "21 Jan 06; 22Jan 07 Pat USA 12 Ma 03". It retains both gondolas underneath and a hanging loop on the top. The stop start tab, when operated works as it should and the mechanism can be wound up and the propeller spins as it should. The propeller has the clear plastic inserts missing. This is a scarce toy. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 12985
