LOT OF 7 VINTAGE MINIATURES OF MORE THAN 50 YEARS - EXCELLENT CONDITION
These miniatures were purchased as they were released, between 1964 and 1966. Exhibited in a showcase for about 20 years, then been subsequently stored in a box protected from light, dust and heat, for more than 30 years. They came out of their box to be photographed in order to be offered for sale on Catawiki.
These 7 miniatures are like new (partially exposed, never used).
The originality of this lot is that it is composed of 7 miniatures (5 corgi, 1 Ziss and 1 Rio) released exclusively between 1964 and 1966 and that the represented models only concern pre-war cars, or even from before the First World War.
Specifically, it is, in the order of the photos, the following models:
-ADLER Limousine - year 1905 - Manufacturer: ZISS-MODELL - made in Germany - Reference 30 (released in 1965) - scale 1/43
- DAIMLER 38 - year 1910 - Manufacturer: CORGI - made in GB - Reference 9021 (released in 1964) - scale 1/40
-RENAULT 12/16 - year 1910 - Manufacturer: CORGI - made in GB - Reference 9032 (released in 1965) - scale 1/40
-ROLLS ROYCE 40/50 (limousine) - year 1912 - Manufacturer: CORGI - made in GB - Reference 9041 (released in 1966) - scale 1/43
-FORD Model T convertible - year 1915 - Manufacturer: CORGI - made in GB - Reference 9011 (released in 1964) - scale 1/40
-BENTLEY Le mans - year 1927 - manufacturer: CORGI - made in GB - Reference 900 (released in 1964) - scale 1/40
-MERCEDES BENZ convertible - year 1937 - manufacturer: RIO - made in Italy - Reference 21 (released in 1966) - scale 1/43
Note that the paint of the 2 tool boxes of the Rolls-Royce is tarnished, or even partially passed (see photos 46 and 47). Besides the Mercedes has the left fastener of its rear bumper broken (see picture 83). Nevertheless the bumper remains in place (see photos 84 and 85). A touch of glue will be enough to reposition it permanently. Note that 2 small purple traces of 2-3 mm are present on the left rear wing of this Mercedes. They are little visible (see photos 78 and 85).
For the rest, despite their more than 50 years of existence, these miniatures are in almost perfect condition.
The original packaging is missing. The miniatures will be well obviously perfectly packaged for transport.
Some bluish reflections that can appear in the photos betray nothing else than the colour of the used smartphone.
In conclusion: a collector lot ‘Vintage’ from Corgi, Ziss and Rio of more than 50 years old, like new.
