This toy designated EPL 651 was made from 1910 to 1941 and depicts early experimental air ships seen in Germany at the time.  The toy is suspended by a string and moves in a circle by a pair of celluloid propellers at the rear that run for a long time on a winding.  With working on/off switch. Props are original, as is the exceptional original box.
