Highly colorful and completely operational large tin child’s toy spinning top made by the J. Chein Company, Harrison, New Jersey, Circa 1950. It works great and is in completely all original condition and authentic with no repairs, no touch-up or repaint, and no restoration of any kind. A few scratches here and there from having been played with; the multiplicity of colors of red, purple, blue, yellow, white, green and orange, are very strong on a white base backdrop. It is all metal except for the small 3″ yellow plastic support base on the underneath. The metal spiral plunger is attached to a red wooden handle and is pulled out and depressed in place once or twice to get the action going (ask to see see video).
This size is a little hard to find with the dimensions being quite large at 11 1/4″ diameter x 11″ high.
Note: After 40 plus years of dealing and collecting toys, I am justly qualified to guarantee and present the authenticity of antique and vintage toys and banks; important considering the fakes and reproductions in the marketplace
