ADO Ko Verzuu Renbode toy car 1940
Height: 12,5 cm
Width: 40 cm
Depth: 16 cm
Very rare early Renbode toy car, Model 945. designed by Ko Verzuu for Ado Holland in the 1940s. 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 car, with edged corners, all handmade and hand colored. This is an early toy car 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 as a sculpture everywhere! Marked with the ado plate on the front of the car which is often missing! A very good future investment.
