Description
Rocking toy
U.S. - 1950-1974 - beech wood

Plywood Rocking toy
from around 1955/1965 - presumably American - 20 century modern design - mid-century modern design
Rare, special and original 1950s/1960s swing object. This elephant is made of 'plywood' (beech wood). It is not known by which firm or designer it was made. It is not marked, but there seems to have been a sticker on the top at the front.
Remnants of this still seem visible. On the internet can be found that an identical copy was sold for $531 at the well-known 'Wright20' auction house for 20 Century Modern Design in the U.S.A., during the 'Mass Modern' auction on 10 July, 2010 (lot 111). The object was described as 'American'. It is in used but good condition.
Dimensions: height is 33 cm, length: 56 and 70 cm.
