About this Item

N.d., circa 1890. With three different sets of stage scenery, along with the base to plant the scenery. Each set came with a full backdrop and two boards with wings. This toy theater was intended for children between the ages of six and twelve. It cost, supposedly, four marks in its day, and it appears that there may have been six playlets that accompanied the sets, entitled "Kindliche Liebe", "Das Goldtischlein", "Die Friednstifterin", "Das Herrliche Goldstuck", "Der Treue Karo" and "Jo, der Negersklave". Two of the sets are complete, with the third missing one of the wing boards but with a duplicate of the one it has. The card piece that helps hold the scenery boards in place from above has a crease that makes it a little trickier to use as intended, and the some set boards have a tendency to lift out of the slots of the base. Still, all the sets can be displayed attractively, with the qualification of the one with the duplicate wing board. The text to the playlets is missing. The original box is still solid and usable.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
