The First Auction of 2013

It’s been a quiet few weeks on the auction front, as all the local auction houses close down for the Christmas/New Year break. I can completely understand this, but I miss the excitement of hunting for that next great thing even though I know that I am not missing out, just deferring the finds.

So it was great to go to the first auction of 2013 this week. “Yay!” for Bennicks for starting earlier than everyone else.

There was a treat in store for anyone who liked vintage toys:

Like this lovely tinplate car:

Or, for the more military minded, a tin plate tank:

And some other tinplate toys

A classic vintage train set:

For more active kids, how about this pedal car:

What about this lovely Mobo safety bike, such fantastic 1950s styling:

Or howabout the classic 1970s styling of this Chopper for a bigger kid?

Or, for the more domestically inclined (and notice that I’m avoiding stereotypes here) a 1950s doll’s house:

It will be a couple of weeks before the auctions settle down to their normal schedule. Until then, I will be trying to find forgotten gems in my piles of boxes and sharing them with you when I can.

  1. What immensely lovely vintage toys. I’m in love with the pedal car and doll house. Oh my, if I had that doll house, I’d give it pride-of-place in my living room. The climbing vines on the outside just slay me – ahhh, what a beautiful work of yesteryear toy art.
