About Catawiki's model car auction
The first model cars appeared on the market in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, at around the same time as modern automobiles, with the earliest examples produced in solid metals such as brass. In the 1920’s, Tin and pressed steel cars, trucks and military vehicles were produced by the German toy company, Bing. The manufacture of die-cast models was introduced in the 1950’s by companies such as Corgi Toys, Dinky Toys and Matchbox. These toys have become highly collectable today, with their characteristically bright colours and packaging. In 2008, a 1930’s red and green Dinky toy truck, bearing the name of a London cycle shop, became one of the most expensive ever, selling at auction for £19,975.
