Appraisal event discovery: Schoenhut circus figures

This group of twelve Schoenhut circus figures was taken to the Michaan’s Auctions appraisal event held on Wednesday, July 25th.  The delightful pieces were brought in by a gentleman from Orinda, charming appraiser Elizabeth Dalton and staff members alike.  The toys (which Dalton believed to be circa 1910) include depictions of Buffalo Bill, a rhinoceros, a zebra, a polar bear, a giraffe, two clowns, two donkeys and two horses, one surmounted by a lady.  The toy collection was recently gifted to him after his mother’s passing, but he clearly recalls that she did not allow him to play with them while he was growing up.  These joyous pieces of classic American toy craftsmanship were estimated at $800-1,200
