Lehmann “Daredevil” – man on zebra cart

lehmann-portfolio-01162011-760

These fun toys were made in Germany by Lehmann from 1924-1935 and poke fun at man’s attempt to train zebras to pull carts.  Here the black driver is tipped forward then thrown back as he tightens the reins to hold the zebra back.  Known as EPL 752, this is the same as the toy known as “Zikra.”  In later years these were produced in a different color scheme as “Na-Nu.”
