Height: 22 cm
Width: 54 cm

Very rare toy truck Model 968. designed by Ko Verzuu for Ado Holland in 1939. 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 truck, handmade and hand painted. This is a Groenten & Fruit truck (Vegetables & Fruit) and has original Bijenkorf sticker and price on the bottom, de Bijenkorf sold a lot of Ado furniture in the 30s-60s. Ado toys have a great charm because of their played look and original age wear but this one is very well kept. This car is in a very nice used condition, completely original condition. Would be an amazing addition to any interior or collection.
