Offering a clockwork toy from my collection. I purchased this from another collection about 20 years ago. Ives Company of Bridgeport, CT, circa 1880's. Two wooden figures with porcelain hands and feet (one hand missing) do a jig when wound. All original clothes. Clean brass works with key. It always worked when I showed my granddaughters but needs tweaking now; easy fix I'm sure. Hard to find in this excellent condition.
