This listing is for a battery operated Dolly Dressmaker/Seamstress tin toy from the 1950's, made in Japan by Nomura. The toy runs on two "D" size batteries and is fully functional with many great actions! When powered on, realistic sewing machine sounds are heard, the wheel on the sewing machine continuously spins as the needle moves up and down, Dolly's hands slide the fabric left to right across the sewing table, her head moves side to side to examine her progress, her feet move up and down, and lighted images of a dog, flower and bird rotate by underneath the fabric. Cosmetically, the toy is in very good condition with bright colors.
There are a few old glue marks on Dolly's dress collar and on the back of the dress, some discolored marks on the fabric piece, as well as a few light scratches in places on the tin litho. The battery compartment is clean other than some minor oxidation spots, particularly on the outer edge. The carboard battery diagram remains inside. A great collector's piece!
