Toy car, 'Tut-Tut', metal, clockwork-operated, made by E.P. Lehmann, Brandenburg, Germany, 1910-1920 The toy car is an early veteran model with a coal shuttle-shaped louvered bonnet. Other features include an upright steering wheel, small head lamps and artillery wheels. There is neither driver protection nor windscreen. The car is driven by an oversized male figure, wearing a white suit and straw boater, who raises a horn to his lips and blows. A small set of bellows under the chassis provided the noise for the horn. After being wound by the key in the side panel of the car, the driver steered an erratic course. The car is lithographed tin plate and is finished in white with red lining.
