Very rare and very early toy truck model 954 designed by Ko Verzuu for Ado Holland in 1932. Ado means Arbeid door onvolwaardigen, translated; labor by incapacitated, which makes this an even more special piece. Toys by Ado are being highly collected at the moment, even more than ever cause this is very decorative combined with 1950s furniture from all countries! This is a super early long truck from ca 1932, type timber trade (HOUTHANDEL) which is an exceptional find for its age cause this is from the early ADO productions when these toys were made in very limited production cause of the expenses. The truck still has the old mark on the front and brand marked ADO stamp on the bottom which was later replaced for a metal tag. Ado toys have a great charm because of their played look and original age wear. Ko Verzuu inspired his designed on ‘De Stijl’ bij Gerrit Thomas Rietveld. In this car you can see a lot of comparisons with ‘De Stijl’ and Gerrit Rietveld. This truck is in a very nice used condition with a beautiful patina from age.  Would be an amazing decorative addition to any interior. Super decorative piece of modernism.
