Antique Toys, Auction, October

“In Germany, we had a word for this kind of toy racing car, Kneterenner, which means ‘putty racer’. You’d fill your racing car with putty for weight and then push it down the sidewalk. The car that went the farthest won. Mercury sold a catapult for these kinds of races in a set with one or two racing cars. Can you imagine how the cars looked after those races? They were not mint anymore, that’s for sure!”

Cars photographed by and drawn from the collection of Michael Spengler.
