Description

This lithographed tin tank was manufactured by Louis Marx and Company in the 1930's. It features a clockwork mechanism that can be activated with a key. As the tank moves, a third wheel swivels, which makes the tank move in all directions. Periodically, the soldier will spring out. The other two wheels are wooden and the clockwork mechanism is completely concealed until the soldier pops out.
