RARE LEHMANN TINPLATE CLOCKWORK TUMBLING ACROBAT - AJAX. CIRCA 1880

An extremely rare piece by the famous German Factory Lehmann made in 1880. Lehmann specialised in tinplate items many of them clockwork or fly-wheel driven and often with complex movements to drive the different components. Ajax is one of their masterpieces and this is a fine example. The costume varied, but in one of the renowned references books there is a picture of this very costume on this piece.
