1930's Joustra Backflip Monkey
This circa 1930's Joustra back-flip monkey is made out of pressed tin, and comes with a brass key for wind-up. The piece still functions but do to its age, we're hesitant to wind it much. The French Toy company Joustra, was founded by Guillaume Marx in 1934. It remains one of the biggest names in the history of tin toys. The first factory was located in Strasbourg-Neudorf. Approximately 4" tall.
