KING & COUNTRY NEW RELEASES
THOMAS GUNN NEW RELEASES

American Metal Toys

Owners: Royce Reyff & C. Raymond Pierson

Original Location: California Avenue, Chicago, Illinois

Last Location: 215 North Racine, Chicago, Illinois

Circa / Anno: 1937 to 1941

Size: 3 inches tall / 75mm tall hollowcast lead

American Metal began producing it's hollowcast lead figures in 1937 and produced them until wartime restrictions on lead forced them to close their doors in 1941. The American Metal molds were then sold to Lincoln Logs, which curiously never used the molds. The most distinguishing characteristic of all American Metal figures is their clunkiness, which in my opinion, is their main attraction. A defining characteristic is the manner in which the eyes are painted with straight brows. Finally one of the most overlooked characteristics is the choked pourholes on the base, making them appear flat or smooth in some instances. American Metal Toys set it's figures apart by the high quality lacquer it used to paint it's figures with.
