Camel bell toy with rider. Often referred to as Althof Bergmann, there is a fine line between whether these actually were manufactured by Althof Bergmann or manufactured by Gong Bell. This particular example employ the trademark cast iron heart shaped wheels, aesthetically pleasing, a variety of animals with or without figures, excentric front wheels, mounted upon tin bases, and dome shaped bells with tribar with clappers. Whimsical and appealing by nature, this dromedary camel features a shell-shaped blanket topped by a bell. The driver/rider sitting directly behind the camel's head with prodding stick in hand directing the camel on the proper path. Upon close examination one can observe the fine detailing of the camel's body.
