; Production Run: 1913-40. In the early twentieth century, roller skating became one of America’s great exports to urban centers around the world. Berlin was certainly no exception and Lehmann was keen to design a figure that reflected the intense interest in this new sport. In many ways, Primus the roller skater is one of Lehmann’s most fascinating toys. Like a science experiment, straightforward motion is created by the repeated spreading and closing of the figure’s legs. This is a very sublime specimen of this rare toy.
