The Annual Spring Sale, presented by Bertoia Auctions, is a collection of over 1,600 toys, models, and figurines from the collections of Dmitri Ilyinsky, Bob Weiss, Bill and Wendy Jones, Karyl Newman, and others. Antique mechanical banks are well-represented in the sale, including an 1880s Mikado figure from Kyser & Rex Co. To operate, a coin is placed under the figure’s right hat. After turning a rear crank, the coin appears under the left hat. The auction house notes the excellent condition of this lot.
Also up for bid are several models of ships and boats, including a Marklin Live Steam Amerika ocean liner. The piece has three masts, six lifeboats, and many hand-painted details. A grouping of model cars, which includes a 1932 Hudson Factory Showroom Model, is available as well. The Hudson is a scaled representation built for the New York World’s Fair.
Country store memorabilia, doorstops, Marklin trains and boats, and Lehmann and Fernand Martin toys will also be under the gavel. View any of these lots and register to bid on Bertoia Auctions.
