RED TOP CRANE, manufactured by Mutoscope Reel Co., circa. 1937
This is a meticulous restoration of an Art Deco masterpiece of the late 1930’s. It has the candy vendor feature with the candy mechanism dumping from the right hand silo (skyscraper building) directly into the prize delivery chute behind the roll-up door. Beautiful walnut veneer and detail throughout. It operates flawlessly. Production of this model ceased at the beginning of WW2 and also was not in production for as long a time as the slightly earlier Electric Traveling Crane.
