This is the largest sized Hess Gunboat tin offering. It is a twin gun toy with an undulating wave action.
Condition is very good,The litho is crisp, with some scratching as shown. Gold colors have aging. Still, overall, it is a beautiful toy for any collection.
Hess made these to scoot across the floor and act like waves were causing the toy to rise and fall. Then the flywheel is made of lead and spins fast to propel the toy.
Our boat was manufactured by the Hess Company in Nuremburg, Germany during the early 20th century.
It is an extremely rare toy.
Manufactured between 1910-1920.
