Zeppelin Toy Model

Zeppelin Toy Model

A clock work toy model of a First World War Zeppelin. Made from tin. There should be four fins at the rear of the toy, but two are missing. The undercarriage has two suspended cabins to simulate the original zeppelin. A string is attached to the top of the ship so that the toy can be suspended. When the toy is wound up and suspended the propellers turn around. Part of the original box is still remaining.

Ref: 1996/053/001
