Anker was a well-known manufacturer of plastic toys in the GDR. The state-owned toy factory in Eisfeld, Southern Thuringia, introduced this brand name in 1964. From 1974 to 1981, the products of the factory were marketed under the Piko name, then the company was officially renamed into VEB Anker-Mechanik Eisfeld. Anker manufactured various remote-controlled and friction-powered plastic cars in big scales from 1/15th to 1/25th, which were constructed as durable toys, but still were quite accurate reproductions of the original cars. The range included a remote-controlled Wartburg 353 and friction-powered models of Trabant 601 and Barkas B1000, the latter in bus, van and pick-up versions, but also Western European cars such as Renault 6 Rodeo, Audi 100 Avant, Fiat 124 Coupé, 127 and 242, Alfa Romeo 1300 Junior Zagato, Jaguar XJS and Puch G.
