Seek Wolverine Zilotone Musical Toy
By Ruth Parker
-- non-subscriber, please reply to sender and MMD --
I am eager to purchase a Zilotone toy in good working condition
with the music discs. It was manufactured by Wolverine in 1930.
It consists of a clown on a stand who has metal rods extending from his
hands which join at the end into a small hammer that plays metal keys
mounted on a semicircular form. The mechanism has a wind-up key that
triggers the action.
The discs are metal with saw-like rims. Some tunes are "My Old
Kentucky Home", "The Sidewalks of New York", "The Farmer in the Dell."
I would be most grateful for information leading to a source.
