Very nice toy truck designed by Ko Verzuu for Ado Holland in 1948. Ado is an abbreviation for 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! This is an early long truck from ca 1948, type prefabrication (MONTAGEBOUW) which is an exceptional find for its age cause this is from the early ADO productions when these toys were made in very limited production cause of the expenses. Ado toys have a great charm because of their played look and original age wear. Ko Verzuu inspired his designs on ‘De Stijl’ period and the designs of Gerrit Thomas Rietveld especially. In this car you can see a lot of comparisons with 'De Stijl' and Gerrit Rietveld. This car is in a very nice used condition, completely and original. Marked with the metal emblem. Would be an amazing decorative addition to any interior.
