Overall Dimensions: 11.00 x 14.00
Bright red U.S. Mail truck with a spring-wound mechanism. Evoking nostalgia for a bygone era, antique cast-iron toys trace technological advances made during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 2002 the U.S. Postal Service pays tribute to these whimsical and beloved pieces of Americana with the issuance of the Antique Toys stamps. The toys depicted on the Antique Toys stamps come from the collections at Strong Museum of Rochester, New York. They were photographed by Sally Andersen-Bruce of New Milford, Connecticut.
