    German elbkrone child's bicycle from the 20's or 30's

    I inherited a very old child's bicycle, it has a lot of petina, but is very original, I'm trying to figure out exactly what it is. I was hoping to pick some people's brains.

    The bike is quite small, has a pretty unique front brake setup which operates by pushing down on the front tire.
    The tires were made from plastic and melted.
    It has a plaque on the front just below the handlebars which has "Elbkrone" written in it along with a crown image.
    The seat appear so be leather and rivetted to the framing.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Going to get better pictures as soon as possible

    I'd be interested to see it as well. Not because I'll have any idea on how old it is (though for those in the know pics do help), but because it sounds cool.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"
