Tinplate clockwork pedalling duck.
Made at a time when someone thought it would be a good idea to put up a wall to mark their territory.
Can you even IMAGINE living in a time where anyone would conceive of that? Much less think it a good idea?
Thankfully no whimsy was lost, as this propeller-topped duck on a tricycle can attest.
The best part: its knees actually work.
