For those who specialise in niche sectors of the collectors market there is an interesting selection of goods on offer in Wednesdays sale.
Tri-ang toys were the company set up by the 3 Lines Brothers after the first World War. The name was a clever interpretation of the fact that 3 lines make a triangle! Amongst many products designed by them was their pedal car range, which ran from the 1920’s through to the 1970’s. The Tri-ang model eighty dates from the 1950’s and is an open top 2 seater car. This example is in completely un-restored condition but has most of its parts and although lacking a windscreen it is possible to source spares. A good project for an enthusiast, it has a guide of £70/100.
The Barcrest company have been a leading brand in the European gaming industry for over 40 years. Their complex Golden Dragon fruit machine was copyrighted in 2002. It is a typical arcade or pub machine, requiring some space as it stands 71” high by 26 ½” wide and 26” deep. It could be an ideal addition for a “man cave” and is reasonably priced at £50/70.
The Swarovski Company was founded in 1892 at Wattens in the Tyrol district of Austria. Their best known products are their range of crystal glass objects, which are often applied with chemical coatings to enhance the ability to refract light in a rainbow spectrum. Special models are released every year, for avid collectors all around the world. “Isadora” was the first of a set of 3 figures dating from 2002 – 2004. Collectively known as the Magic of the Dance Trilogy they celebrate dancers of the 20th Century, this first model representing Isadora Duncan. This striking figure shows her with her arms stretching upwards and a blue scarf floating behind her. She stands 8” high and is complete with original packaging & certificate. All 3 from the series are on offer, at £110/130 apiece.
Hummel china figures were inspired by the drawings of Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel and were produced from the 1930’s by the Goebl china factory. They became particularly popular in the USA, as soldiers stationed in Europe after the Second World War sent them home as gifts. Amongst a good selection on offer here are “Tit for Tat” modelled as a little boy having an altercation with a parrot and “Little Fiddler” modelled as boy busking with a violin. Both are in good order and ask £20/30 each.
Another factory with a loyal fan base is the Wade factory with their Whimsies range. In 1958 they issued 4 figures inspired by Enid Blytons “Noddy” books. Mr Plod the policeman was one of these and is now considered to be quite rare. He stands 2 ½” high and is priced at £30/35.
R.D. Sherrin is best known for his watercolours, but he also used oils as a medium. A view of the River Ure near Ripon in Yorkshire was commissioned by a lady client in the area and shows his proficiency in this style. It measures 19 ¾” x 291/” and with gilt frame in good order invites bids of £400/450.
Mid 20th Century shop furniture has seen a rise in popularity, so an oak finished haberdashers cabinet fitted with a multitude of glazed fronted drawers standing 64” high and 47” wide should be popular at £70/80.
