wheeled toy

Wheeled, pullalong toy in painted wood. A standing man in profile, bearded, holding a staff. Dressed in a dark fur hat, a red and gold ankle length cloak with a high collar and gloves and boots. The same pattern is repeated on the other side of the profile. On a rectangular base, green, with four red and green wheels and a string. The string is attached to the opposite end from the direction the man is facing, meaning he would be pulled facing backwards.
