TOY WALRUS, C. 1930

This stylised walrus was produced, along with a rhinoceros, elephant, lion and camel, as a design for a commission for Czech industry from the State Education Institute. It is something of a miracle that the prototypes have survived. Thanks to that, the toys have been successfully reproduced today.

painted lathed wood, 4.5/12/16.5 cm
