The Garage features a gray surface to the corrugated walls, sliding door and base and black surface to the curved, corrugated roof.

Included with the Garage are 2 Georg Fisher, Tin Lithograph, Penny Toy Automobiles - an Open Air Racer and a Limousine. The Racer measures approx. 3 1/8” long, 1 3/8” tall (to the top of the removable driver) and 1” wide. It features a separately made, original driver, solid tin wheels with separately made, red hubcaps and the Georg Fischer Trademark on the side doors. The Limo measures approx. 3” long, 1 1`/4” tall and 1” wide and although it is not signed with the “GF” mark, it features identical wheels and hubcaps, is marked “Made in Germany” and has design and construction elements that identify it closely with the signed Racer also included here.
This rare and wonderful, 1920’s Tin Lithograph Penny Toy Garage and Two Cars is in very good to excellent condition overall. The condition. It is 100% original and has never been repaired, repainted, touched-up, or restored in any way. The two Automobiles are both in excellent condition with no crack, breaks, chips, repairs or physical damage of any kind and only very light edge wear to the original lithographed surfaces. The Garage lacks one of the sliding doors but is otherwise complete and physically sound with no crack, breaks, chips, repairs or physical damage of any kind. The front, sides, bottom and door panels retain 99%+ of the original, grey surface and the roof has some small areas of light surface oxidation (see the scans below). The Cars fit perfectly into the Garage and we are quite sure that the three pieces are all original to the Toy.

Important Notes about Shipping Charges and the "Detailed Seller Rating" Star System:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee.
We have NEVER requested response from our customers as we were taught that "fishing for compliments" was impolite but the new Detailed Rating System has put us in a rather tight spot. Most buyers are unaware that bases a monthly fee discount on a Seller's "Star" rating. A monthly average of "4.6 Stars" (in any one of the four "Star" categories) costs us approximately $400 in additional Fees - that's $400 above what we would pay if we had a "4.8 Star" average in all 4 "Star" categories!! As a consequence we hope you do not find us rude to ask that if you are happy with our items, our service, and our packing & shipping please be sure to use the "Star" rating system and remember that a "5 Star" rating is the only way we can qualify for 's fee reduction program. ,
