I don't believe I've seen a machine like this. Is this a toy? It's at an upcoming estate sale.

It's got to be a toy, look at the size of it compared to the door chain. I want to now what the machine is that's off to the right out of the picture.

They also have a domestic rotary and a good housekeeping machine (both in cabinets) in the sale. It's in McKinney, which is about 30 miles of thick traffic and road construction north of me.

It looks like a Casige German toy machine, probably fairly modern (?). I couldn't find any that looked just like it, but the eagle badge is the same. The older ones are very prized because of their Art Deco decals, but I don't think the newer ones are as valuable. I'd take it, though!

Yep, Margaret got it right. It's a Casige Toy machine.
Casige (which stands for CArl SIeper GEvelsberg) was apart from F.W. Müller the most popular german Toy machine producer. They were in production from around 1900 up to the early 1970's.

Like Margaret already wrote the earlier models are highly sought, this however seems to be a later model (my guess would be late 50's or 60's). It's probably hand- and battery-operated. The first models after WW2 are often marked "Made in the british Zone" as Gevelsberg, the companys hometown was located in the british Zone.

Thanks, Guys. I didn't see anything else in the sale that interested me, so I think I'll skip that 2 hour round trip.

Love the color!  I have a Casige in a similar color, two tone with tan and chrome.  Mine is marked made in Western Germany, which I have been told dates it from 1950-1955.  It is a hand crank only, with a chain drive.
