This Popeye Punching Toy is from 1932. This example is in wonderful working condition. There is some natural toning to the litho which makes it wonderful for display in the collection.Normal scratches or marks on litho. See discolor on base along the edge and on rear corner. Most of the production run for this toy was with the green base. A few red base varieties were made. The red base variety is quite scarce. The Popeye figure is mounted through the base with 4 bent tabs up from the base into the figure. There are also 2 tin strip tabs that extend from the outside of Popeye's feet down through the base where they are twisted to tighten. When wound Popeye's articulated arms frantically punch at the bag as the bag bumps all around. The J Chein oval logo is on the back of Popeyes left leg.
Collecting varieties may become your passion. 7 1/2 H, 2 3/4 W, 4 3/4 long. A very elusive toy to acquire with the red base in wonderful working and display condition, like this one. This may be the investment you are looking for. I have been dealing Popeye toys for 30+ years.
From my private collection, a beautiful Chein Popeye Puncher. Puncher with wonderful original color and presentation. The Chein company was founded by Julius Chein in New Your City in 1903.
In 1926 Julius was killed in a horse-riding accident in New Yorks Central Park. Popeyes intension here is to simulate the bag punching action for which he is so famous.The winding shaft is located just behind the right arm of Popeye. Just an outstanding example of a great early Popeye toy. One of the most elusive Popeye toys ever made by an American Toy Company.
