Antique 1920’s male balancing tin lithographed figure. This is an authentic antique balancing toy, a figure of a Japanese man in red kimono. He has a looped wire which ends with a colored tin disk, one red and one blue. the figure of the man is about 2 inches wide, and 1 3/8ths inches tall. The bottom of the man has a pointed end for balancing the figure.
His balance can be controlled by bending the wires more or less. The lithography is only on one side of the figure. The wires from each side are 4.5 inches long on each side. Overall in good to very good condition, showing some age darkening, and some minor scratches from storage, and handling.
