Picked up this piece of yard art at the Santa Monica Flea which has reopened. It was one of the fourth Sunday fleas in the LA area.
I have not found a match for this on the net aside from a site called Collectors Weekly where it was posted 10 years ago. Sadly I did not find out for certain any information but 1940s/50s does seem reasonable. It is a very simple tricycle without an additional rear brace on the back step. In the long ago you could have a rider stand on the back step. The skinny wheels are what is most noticeable about this trike. They are super skinny. They probably did not stand up well to play. I am sure it will do fine as yard art and the gnomes will take fine care of it.
