Gunthermann began producing mechanical toy cars in Nuremberg in 1898 and also a number of comic and character tin wind-ups in the early 1960s.

When the founder Siegfried Gunthermann died in 1890, his widow married Adolph Weigel. Toys from that period on bore makers mark with a shield inside circle and initials A.S.G.W. Wiegels initials were removed following his death in 1919.

The company was acquired by Siemens in 1965.

I have an RARE COLORFUL CIRCUS CLOWN ON BALL GUNTHERMANN TIN LITHO HAND PAINTED PULL TOY he is missing one arm and has paint wear. What is he worth?
►reply: In July there was a complete one for sale on eBay for around 700 USD, but it wasn't sold. If yours is missing a part, it could reduce the price significantly but could still fetch 75-150 USD. Collectors are always on the lookout for toys for parts.

Hello,There is a rare Gunthermann "Yellow Cab" Toy. It had front and rear bumpers which were designed as bump and go switches. I have found this version of the cab sold at a price of $1750. Does anyone know if Gunthermann produced a "yellow cab" (not yellow taxi) which did not have the front and rear bumper action? I am looking at one right now and it is identical to the formentioned version but no bumpers! I thought maybe they were missing but there is no slot in the grill where the bumper attached. Same grill jsut a solid tin plate with no opening! Wierd, huh? Does anyone know of various versions of the "yellow cab"? Thank you.
►reply: Hi, it looks like there versions without the bumper mechanism. Take look at google images for example: gunthermann yellow cab.

I have a model about 12" long of a red two seater sports car with a 5 speed clockwork motor. I have seen apicture of the same from a Vectis Auction site but have been able to go no further. They classed it as a Gunthermann from around 1940's. Could you help me at all if I was to send some pictures ? Thanks
►reply: Sure, send the pics to fabtintoys @ gmail dot com
