Lehmann Paddy and the Pig Antique Tin Windup Toy

Circa 1924: Marked on the bottom "MADE IN GERMANY D.R. PATENT LEHMANN PATD 1903, 1905 1907," this Lehmann Paddy and the Pig is one of the most whimsical and fantastic German tin windup toys of the early 20th century, featuring an Irishman saddled atop a pig and ready for the ride of his life. When wound, Paddy twists as the pig rolls forward. The mechanism is sluggish but does work sporadically when wound, and the toy is in its untouched as found condition with no touch ups to the paint and no repairs.
