Tin German Globe Carousel is a magnificent clockwork tin toy still made in Germany.

This is a beautiful, brightly coloured and intricate tin toy with scenes of children playing cowboys and Indians on the base as well as fairground images on the side.
The Globe Carousel is operated by pulling a lever on the base which winds the spring. The globe then turns pushing the suspended gondolas out to the side.
The Globe Carousel comes packaged in a solid brown box with an image of the ride on the frontl.
