Dapper Dan The Tap Dancing Man Black Americana Antique Jigging Toy
Dapper Dan "The Tap Dancing Man" Tin Jigger Toy
Vintage Black Americana from the Early 1900's around the 30's.
Manufactured by: Jaymar specialty Company Brooklyn, NY
This very hard to find vintage jigger toy came right from the original owner. It has been stored carefully in a non-smoking home. It is in great shape although, when the owner was a child it was played with so it is not in mint condition. This toy is hard to find in any condition, so although not in mint condition it is still in pretty good shape. All the pieces are intact, and connected. The box is included, it is not intact and has been folded flat. It is in very delicate condition and is fragile, but it has survived in it's current condition. It is almost impossible to find a box to go with these old jigger toys. Also included are the green tap platform, and the wand/tool which attaches to Dapper Dan's back. This is how you make him "Tap." As with any old tin toys, it is very delicate and takes a gentle and careful hand to operate him properly. There are both dents and area where the paint has been scratched or removed. Please look at the pictures for the best description and to study the condition.
