Ko Verzuu car garage for Ado 1935
Height: 22,5 cm
Width: 52 cm
Depth: 25 cm
Park your Ado car in this very nice and rare toy garage, Model 514 designed by Ko Verzuu for Ado in 1935. This is a very rare and hard to find early piece of kid’s toy made by Ado in the early beginning of Ado, 1930s. Ado means, Arbeid door onvolwaardigen, meaning; Labor by incapacitated, which makes this an even more special piece if you ask me. Typical de Stijl related coloring, shape and use of wood connections. Rietveld could have designed this garage! The garage has a sand color and terracotta colored top, green doors with yellow handles and it is in used condition. There is damage to the corner but hey, it’s over 80 years old and played with, it’s the charm.
