'Tin-plate toy' by 'JEP', c. 1935

‘JEP’ (Jouet de Paris): a very rare tin-plate toy of a hydroplane (seaplane) with superb lithography/decals and all original-paintwork and finish, the two large floats intended to support the weight of the Dewoitine on water. Of steel construction with a very powerful clockwork engine intended to drive the piece along when being played with on water. Manufactured from 1934 to 1966 in quite small numbers as the hydroplane proved rather heavy for good performance on the water. One of the best toy planes ever made, in excellent original condition.

Dimensions: Length 13 inches (33 cms), wingspan 18 inches (46 cms).
