Guntermann toys

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 a gutherman tin bear drummer in excellent condition that works. Having trouble finding much about it,other than it is probably a valuble toy it is a brown drummer with a green hat. works well! any body knw more than me?
Yes, it's a very valuable toy, a few hundred dollars. If you look at other bear toys by Gunthermann then you'll see why. I suggest having it auctioned at an auction house which is specialized in tin toys or eBay with a high minimum price.

I have an ASGW tinplate car with GORDON BENNET named on each side of the bonnet. It has a driver and passenger in an open driving position. It has the key attached and runs well for its age. It also has the front wheels adjustable. It is approx. 19cm. long and 9cm wide.
I think you got a wonderful toy!

I have a tine wind up toy with a bird and arrow trade mark on the bottom. My Dad referred to it as Irish Mail. What does the Gunthermann trade mark look like?
No idea, sorry... It would be best to post a picture in this Facebook group with tin toy collectors, maybe they can give you an answer.

I am trying to find out if a toy that I have is indeed a Guntherman. Was there always a logo on the windup ladies and if so where would I look to find it?Thank you

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?
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.
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
Sure, send the pics to fabtintoys @ gmail dot com

I have a antique tin ferris wheel pretty large in size appears to be much older than anything I can find pictures of online, I acquired this in an estate sell but have yet to find out any info on the ferris wheel that I have, it does wind up and plays music, has a lot of charicteristics of the gunthermann ones I have seen on your website and ebay, I really just would like to know what I have or some more info on ferris wheel.
Did you find any more info? You can also try Google images with : Gunthermann Ferris Wheel to see if you can find the same as you have.
