Albert Schoenhut was a third generation wood carver, born in Germany, who established his toy factory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1872 for making wood toys; his first toy was a piano.  It's believed the first dolls copyrighted in 1903 were for the Humpty Dumpty Circus including lady and gentleman acrobats, lion tamer, lady circus rider and a ringmaster. 

This is a rare and complete Schoenhut boxed reduced size Humpty Dumpty circus set comprising a horse and donkey with painted eyes, ringmaster in red felt jacket with top hat and cane, lady rider with composition head wearing green top with gold braid detailing and pink skirt, clown with geometric pattern suit and red boat feet along with off white ladder and chair and red, white and blue barrel. The items were originally tied onto backing card with Humpty Dumpty Circus label - most still are. All contained in lidded box with beautiful colour illustrated original label to lid and black & white printed set No. 21/24 end label. Box measures 44 x 31 x 7 cms / 17.25 x 12 x 2.75 inches. For scale, ring master measures 17.5 cms / 7 inches high

all figures in very good original condition with some minor paint loss and light staining plus the donkey's strings are severed in the neck area so needs to be restrung. Box is complete but in fair to good condition with sides and corners taped but metal corner reinforcements still present. Lid label is complete and bright with some minor water staining. Side label is virtually complete with edge nibbles and staining

Postage and packing

Postage and packing is not included in the prices quoted and Lilliput World will always pack securely and send by the buyer’s choice of delivery service at your cost.

For those of you who prefer to click straight through and pay, we have given a set of postage options based on value and destination area. By definition, these have to be a best guess as the permutations of sizes, weights and values for sale on this site are huge.

So, if you prefer to decide what you want to buy and then contact us with details of your preferred shipment method and destination, we will be happy to give you a specific quote and then issue your Paypal invoice. The cost quoted will be the actual cost of postage, including any insurance, plus a small amount to cover the packing materials used.

If the buyer asks for the goods to be sent without insurance, then Lilliput World will only be responsible for the value that can be reclaimed as standard from the chosen carrier.

If you do complete the sale automatically and the system charges you excessive postage, this will be refunded to you via Paypal once the correct postage is known. Likewise, we cannot be held to deliver goods to international destinations where the automatic postage supplied is significantly less than the actail cost. We will then contact you and discuss the options and take additional payment as required.

Returns

We do our best to ensure that our descriptions are accurate to the best of our knowledge. Under UK Law, any buyer has full rights of return, including return postage, if Lilliput World is shown to have misrepresented an item.

But we cannot accept items for return where buyers have changed their mind. So please ask any questions before purchase to make sure that you know exactly what you are buying.
