Ado Ko Verzuu decorative toy train ca 1950s

Early production decorative wooden toy train, designed by Ko Verzuu for Ado Holland in the 1930s. This is a very rare early 1950s train. 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! Everyone can see these toys are inspired by De Stijl and Rietveld. Very nice colorful train, all handmade and hand colored. This is an early toy and it’s in played condition but I think the patina makes this a very nice piece with aging to it. Would look highly decorative as this can be used in numerous positions everywhere as decoration! It is marked with the ado plate on the front! A very good future investment.
