Germany’s fabled Tipp & Company produced some of the world’s best tinplate toys throughout the late Twenties and, especially, the full Thirties. Beautiful, almost-model toy autombiles, well crafted airplanes, and even a couple of tinplate airships were their favorite stamping grounds.
Indeed, one has only to look at the superb lines of their Mercedes Autobahn Kurrier to realize their potential. Here, then, are assembled a few of their finest tinplate automobiles to illustrate Tippco’s accomplishments so many years ago now.
