This is one of the most popular and most common of the Lehmann toys.  Made between 1897 and 1938 and designated EPL 425, it features a frantic clown with fabric clothing holding the reins of an uncooperative donkey that gallops forward and backward in an attempt to throw him off.

This mint toy is shown with a mint original box with rare insert sheet of instructions.
