Here is a closer look at this lovely green Plank machine
This machine has no Plank markings but it is believed to be one. It has a tulip floral design and a flat base which is unusual for Plank toys. There is no black paint in the four corners of the base - was this because it originally sat in some kind of stand?
This is a rare VICTORIA Plank machine. I was lucky to be the high bidder on eBay for this one. It came from a knowledgeable collector in Germany.
