We’re all facing difficult times currently but it really strikes home at just how fascinating specialist auctioneering can be when tinplate treasures such as some of those up for auction later this month enter the catalogue. We’ve featured tinplate before but items in our May Auction are certainly some of the best preserved we’ve seen. Take for instance the Tipp & Co Ambulance with figures. You’d be mistaken for thinking the item was a re-issue. One of our favourites is the Ford Mustang by Yonezawa. Not the most valuable but simply stunning in appearance and ‘toy’ appeal. A wonderful item and we’ll enjoy every minute of having them in our saleroom cabinets. There are many more ‘treasures’ so keep checking the catalogue, which is now online.
