Seller: Top-Rated Seller sepiaartichoke (6,255) 100%, Location: Bournemouth, Dorset, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 153528381401 Goodwin's American Derby Goodwin's Official Race Game Co. New York On offer here is an original Goodwins American Derby, a large clockwork tin/ steel race game. Similar to most race games the track itself moves back and fourth (powered by a clock work mechanism) which moves the cast metal horses foward in a random fashion. This is a very well made/ sturdy item, much higher quality than most race games. Not a common find at all, I can find reference on the internet only to one other which was sold in 2014. Made by Goodwins Official Race Co. of New York. From what I can gather this company was owned by Frederick Goodwin who was active in the 1870s +, I don't have an exact date for this piece but it is probably no later than the very early 1900s, perhaps earlier. Cosmetically speaking the condition is very good with only minor loss of paint and no apparant damage or dents. It is complete with all 6 horses, key and original box. I can't however get the track to work (shake). The clock work mechanism appears to be intact (see images) and I cannot imagine that it would be much of a job to get it going again. Box is intact with only one tear to one corner, very good for age. Measures: 22.5 x 9.5 x 4 inchesBox measures: 23 x 10.5 4.5 inches I will properly and securely package this item prior to dispatch so it arrives to you in the same condition it is listed in.I have other vintage and antique games listed at the moment, please take a look. I am always happy to offer combined shipping discounts. International Buyers Welcome and I always ship at actual cost! Any Questions, Just Ask! Condition: Used, Condition: Please refer to images and description., Min. Number of Players: 2 players, Game Type: Gambling Game, Year: Pre-1950
