Estimated Price: $100 - $300

Description: Antique and Collectables Category: Toys Description: This toy has a grown man and a young boy - who is standing on a box of dynamite sticks to be on even footing with the man - on either side of a hand-cart. When wound, the two figures rapidly pump the cart as the Material: Tin, Litho Maker/Artist: Marx Toys Date: C. 1940 Provenance: NJ estate History: Founded in 1919 in New York City by Louis Marx and his brother David, the company's basic aim was to "give the customer more toy for less money," and stressed that "quality is not negotiable" - two values that made the company highly successful. Initially, after working for Ferdinand Strauss, Marx, born in 1894, was a distributor with no products or manufacturing capacity. Marx raised money as a middle man, studying available products, finding ways to make them cheaper, and then closing sales. Enough funding was raised to purchase tooling from previous employer Strauss for two obsolete tin toys - the Alabama Coon Jigger and Zippo the Climbing Monkey. With subtle changes, Marx was able to turn these toys into hits, selling more than eight million of each within two years. Another success was the "Mouse Orchestra" with tinplate mice on piano, fiddle, snare, and one conducting. Marx listed six qualities he believed were needed for a successful toy: familiarity, surprise, skill, play value, comprehensibility and sturdiness. By 1922, both Louis and David Marx were millionaires. Initially, Marx produced few original toys by predicting the hits and manufacturing them less expensively than the competition. The yo-yo is an example: although Marx is sometimes wrongly credited with inventing the toy, the company was quick to market its own version. During the 1920s, about 100 million Marx yo-yos were sold. Unlike most companies, Marx's revenues grew during the Great Depression, with the establishment of production facilities in economically hard-hit industrial areas of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and England. By 1937, the company had more than $3.2 million in assets ($42.6 million in 2005 dollars), with debt of just over $500,000. Marx was the largest toy manufacturer in the world by the 1950s. In 1955, a Time Magazine article proclaimed Louis Marx "the Toy King," and that year, the company had about $50 million in sales. Marx was the initial inductee in the Toy Industry Hall of Fame, and his plaque proclaimed him "The Henry Ford of the toy industry." At its peak, Louis Marx and Company operated three manufacturing plants in the United States: Erie, Pennsylvania, Girard, Pennsylvania, and Glen Dale, West Virginia. The Erie plant was the oldest and largest, while the Girard plant, acquired in 1934 with the purchase of Girard Model Works, produced toy trains, and the Glen Dale plant produced toy vehicles. Additionally, Marx operated numerous plants overseas, and in 1955 five percent of the toys Marx sold in the U.S.A. were made in Japan. Dimensions: H 7.5 in W 6 in D 2 in Size of Artwork: Weight: 5.4oz Condition: Has jerky movements, the original winding key, light scratching and fading to the litho.

Estimated Price: $100 - $200

Description: Antique and Collectables Category: Toys Description: These two hand-cart toys each have two over-all wearing railroad men working the pumps. The paints used were green, red, blue, and yellow. Material: Tin Maker/Artist: Girard Toys Date: Early 20th C. Provenance: History: Girard, Pennsylvania, founded by Frank E. Wood, 1919-1922, also known as: Girard Mfg. Co. 1922-1935; The Toy Works, 1935-1975(Spinning tops, skates, banks, trains, military toys). In the late 1920s, Girard toys made Louis Marx a commission agent and for several years produced toys under the Marx label, along with its own line of steel autos, trucks, and trains, which were produced at Girard Motor Works. Marx and Girard toys are for all intents indistinguishable (a few of the Girard toys bore the slogan "Making Childhood's Hour Happier"). Girard declared bankruptcy in 1934, although toy production continued until 1975. Quaker Oats had bought out Marx's interest in Girard when they bought Marx's American and English toy division 1972. Dimensions: H 5.5 in W 6 in D 2 in Size of Artwork: Weight: 9.4oz Condition: These two toys have accumulated some dirt and wear as well as light scratching over their decades. They still pump their handles when moved across a flat surface, however, and they wind up with their original keys.

Garrison, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $50 - $100

Description: Antique and Collectables Category: Toys Description: This Lincoln Tunnel toy has a wind-up key used to make the busses and cars on its circular track move on a circuit between the New York and New Jersey sides of the tunnel. A Traffic Cop stands at the center, waving Material: Tin, Litho Maker/Artist: Unique Art Toys Date: 1940-50s Provenance: History: Unique Art Manufacturing Company was an American toy company, founded in 1916, based in Newark, New Jersey that made inexpensive toys, including wind-up mechanical toys, out of lithographed tin. One of its early products was a wind-up toy featuring two tin boxers. The company scored a hit in the 1940s when it acquired the rights to a popular comic strip and released the Li'l Abner Dogpatch Band for Christmas 1945. The windup toy featured Abner dancing, Pappy on drums, Mammy with a drum stick, and Daisy Mae playing piano. Unique followed with a Howdy Doody band several years later. Unique's president, Sammy Bergman, was a good friend of toy magnate Louis Marx, and the two men's companies at times cooperated, with Marx providing tooling to Unique and sometimes acting as a distributor for Unique's products. In 1949, Unique began producing lithographed tin O gauge toy trains, using tooling of its own design along with some recycled tooling from the defunct Dorfan Company. Unique sold its trains in inexpensive boxed sets like Marx, and also produced a circus set that was distributed on a car-by-car basis by the [Jewel Tea Company] Jewel Companies. Marx saw this as a betrayal and responded with a new line similar in size to Unique's, but with lithography that looked more realistic. Unique found itself unable to compete, and withdrew its trains from the marketplace by 1951. Although Unique was unable to capture much of a piece of the toy train craze of the early 1950s, a tin typewriter toy introduced during the same time frame did take market share away from Marx, who had a similar toy. Marx responded by moving production of its typewriter toy to Japan in order to undercut Unique's price. Unique Art's eventual fate is unclear but the company appears to have disappeared by 1952. Dimensions: H 3.25 in W 24 in D 3.5 in Size of Artwork: Weight: 14.2 pounds Condition: Fading of the lithography paint, but is entirely functional and contains all original pieces.

RARE 1890 WARWICK IOGA BPOE BULL ELK TANKARD PITCHER XW

by ACCURATE ESTATE AUCTIONS & APPRAISALS

August 2, 2015, 2:00 PM EST

Sheffield, AL, USA

Estimated Price: $175 - $225

Description: We are pleased to offer this Rare & unusual Warwick China IOGA brown glazed BPOE (Benevolent Protective Order of Elks) tankard pitcher from Wheeling, West Virginia ca. 1897- 1904. This stunning large pitcher has the unique brown graduating to golden yellow ground featuring a magnificent large horned bull elk, with the BPOE emblem + the Roman numeral eternal clock. Our tankard carries the very first solid color knights helmet with the crossed rapier and foil beneath + the IOGA crown. Our Warwick China tankard is in Excellent condition, and weighs 3# 7 oz., measuring 7.5 x 6.5 x 13 inches tall. Research consulted: Research consulted: Warwick China / by John R. Rader Sr.; Debolts Dictionary of American Pottery Marks, Whiteware & Porcelain / by Gerald DeBolt; Decorative American Pottery & Whiteware / by Jeanie Klamm Wilby; The Pottery and Porcelain of the United States and Marks of American Potters / by Edwin Atlee Barber, A.M., PH.D.; Lehners Encyclopedia of U.S. Marks On Pottery Porcelain & Clay / by Lois Lehner. This is an extremely valuable antique commemorative Elks Lodge treasure. xxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Warwick china was made in Wheeling, West Virginia, in a pottery working from 1887 to 1951. Many pieces were made with hand painted or decal decorations. The most familiar Warwick has a shaded brown satin background, and Warwick's most desirable pieces are those decorated with portraits of monks or American Indians, AND OF COURSE, the classic shady lady portrait transfers. Much of the Warwick production, including its fine semi porcelain, was legitimate vitrified chinaware, an unusual product for a nineteenth-century American company. The name Warwick is part of the mark and sometimes the mysterious word IOGA is also included. There are many mysteries surrounding Warwick China Co. and many of them will never be solved since much of the history about the company was lost in the flood in 1936, and the remaining records were burned in a fire when Marx Manufacturing Co. took over the plant. Research consulted: Warwick China / by John R Rader Sr. Warwick China Co. was founded in 1884, but was incorporated on Sept. 3, 1887 in Wheeling City, Ohio County, West Virginia, and the factory was located on Water Street, between 21st and 22nd streets. The company was noted for the Early IOGA line and specialized in large brown glazed tankards with portraits of Indians, monks and fraternal emblems. The original Knights helmet with crossed rapier and foil and with the IOGA top was used from ca. 1887 to 1895. The firm also made other types of table wares and vases until it finally closed its doors October 1951. The most intriguing of all the Warwick lines however, was the gorgeous line of light pink, honey gold to brown & gray ground glazed ladies portrait pieces, which individually were of outstanding quality with wonderful colors and portrait definition. A group of hand painted & artist signed vases may also be found, and these are considered to be very scarce. There is a romantic legend that the beautiful female subjects were in reality selected Ladies of the Evening, from the local brothels in Wheeling. The city was a wild and wooly river town, so the purported Painted Lady images only served to enhance the rough & tumble reputation of Wheeling. Conventional wisdom leads us to believe, that due to the fanatical engraving definition for the transfers, and the fact that skilled artisans in that discipline were few & far between, even scarcer in Wheeling, W. Va., one is left to look towards the unchallenged masters of the transfer in the latter 1800s, those being in Germany. The complete history of Warwick China Co. will never be known again since much of the history about the company was lost in the great flood of flood in 1936, and data was further decimated in a fire subsequent to Marx Manufacturing Co. took over the plant. We do know that Warwick initially manufactured semi-porcelain dinner and toilet ware and novelties. The first President was J. R. Mc Courtney, who served until June 1889, when he was succeeded by O. C. Dewey. In 1906, the annual sales of the company had increased about 100 percent, and Warwick China had developed a national reputation as makers of the celebrated line of specialties in IOGA Ware from 1900 to ca. 1915. The company motto was Quality First, and no expense was spared to give customers the best and newest items that skill and experience could produce.
