Lehmann “Mixtum” Black Clown Drives Comical Cart

Purportedly, Lehmann made these interesting toys from 1927-1941 using parts left over from the production of others in its product line.  With off-centered wheels, he moves along in comical fashion rising from the seat as he travels.  These were made with both white and black clowns, each version being called EPL 775.  This one is shiny and mint.  This one is shown with an interesting original box.  The original black rectangles on the label cover over the words “Heavy Swell.”  That, of course, is the name of another Lehmann toy.  The black words “Mixtum” were apparently added at the factory after “Heavy Swell” was blacked out.
