Very rare toy truck designed by Ko Verzuu for Ado Holland in the 1930s. 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 an early truck from ca 1935, type Woodstorage (HOUTHANDEL) which is an exceptional find for its age. Ado toys have a great charm because of their played look and original age wear. Ko Verzuu inspired his designed on ‘De Stijl’ bij Gerrit Thomas Rietveld. This car is in a very nice used condition, completely original and only 2 bars are missing. Would be an amazing decorative addition to any interior.
