Lehmann “Zikra” man on zebra cart

ryan-batch-2-046

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 driver is tipped forward then thrown back as he tightens the reins to hold the zebra back.  Known as EPL 752. It is shown with the original box bearing old tape repairs.
