Celluloid Rickshaw, Driver, & Lady Passenger w/ Parasol, Very Colorful
The detailing on this old piece is exquisite, and this one has had color accenting added which adds to its detailing and brings it to life so much better. There is a red and green dragon on each fender, and on the seat back, and Mount Fuji is also on the seat back. The only thing I find wrong is the umbrella shaft may have an unintended bend near the top, and the wheels wobble side to side as they roll. There is an excess of old glue on either side of the driver but I see no damage there. I am not sure if the driver was intended to have a hat originally or not, but he has none now. It definitely could use a little cleanup, but am not sure what type of cleaner would be safe for the coloring that has been added so I will leave that up to the buyer. Please check out my old ivory items that I am listing at this time. I will always be willing to combine your multiple purchases to save shipping costs when feasible. This item will also be on display at Lincoln Antique Mall, Lincoln Mo. So please check with me regarding availability if interested.
