Very rare and highly decorative toy designed by Ko Verzuu for Ado Holland in the 1950s. Ado means ‘Arbeid door onvolwaardigen’, translated; labor by incapacitated, which makes this an even more special piece. Toys by Ado are being highly collected at the moment, even more than ever cause this is very decorative combined with 1950s furniture from all countries! Very nice colorful truck, handmade and hand colored. This is a skully or kart, designd around 1953. Ko Verzuu designed all toys by Ado, nearly 1000 different pieces exist. He got his inspiration from De Stijl and Rietveld furniture what everybody can see in his designs. He only used more different color combintations. Ado toys have a great charm because of their played look and original age wear. This kart is in a very nice used condition, completely original and nothing missing. Would be an amazing addition to any interior or collection.
