I need help identifying this wood carved toy

I was told this may come from the Black Forest region, but I have no idea. This is a hand carved animated toy. When you push the button on the side the dog bites the man in the behind. Can anyone tell me anything about this piece?

Awesome toy. Good luck finding out about it!

RE: I need help identifying this wood carved toy

I think it is called a "penny toy" came from Germany. Many unsigned but some have Kellermann, Meier, Fischer, or Distler. From around early to late 1800's-1920's but could be repo so then not worth much. Will look in my 2 other books. If real worth over $100.


Not a penny toy as they were tin,& not more than 5 in tall. reread it-sorry, it looks more like a bank, does it have a slot for money anywhere? Otherwise I don't have any listing for animated toys or wooden. Does look German tho. Might try Googling"German antique animated wooden toys" & see if you get anything.

Yes I thought German as well. I saw some similar but all that was said about them is that they came from the Black Forest region. No, there is no slot for money.
