A wonderful set of two Antonio Vitali modern wooden toy figures, tied together with red string. These are from the Playforms range of wooden figural toys made for Creative Playthings, they are a bit different than the usual ones we see. Made at his workshop in Switzerland probably in the 1960s-70s, solid wood construction. There is an identifying tag made out of metal and paper on the string. Figures are stamped into bottom with "Vitali". Tag is marked as "Schweizer Handarbeit Vitali" and the word "Depose" on the back of the metal.
In good vintage condition, with no cracks or breaks. Some light wear, scratches, nicking, dents and roughness. String is unravelled and retied. Tag shows wear.
Measures about 4 3/4 inches tall each.
