Children's car, Carette limousine. This toy, the most sophisticated Carette, distinguished itself by its hand-painted bodywork in cream and sky blue, four nickel-plated headlights and lanterns, opening doors, white rubber tyres, a welded wire gallery (lithographed cars usually had deep-drawn metal galleries), bevelled glass windows, carved upholstered front seats, and more, three side supports for the steps (the lithographed cars had only two) and a functioning steering wheel. The steering mechanism is controlled by a snap-on hook under the steering wheel. The driver of such vehicles was in plaster (see photos). This forty centimetre model is the largest of the three existing sizes.
Really good condition
