Noel Barrett and Pook & Pook are no strangers to toys, and their expertise in vintage toys is unmatched. This December, they are bringing toys from Baranger Studios, J. & E. Stevens, and Roullet & Decamps in an upcoming sale. A carnival Ferris wheel featuring couples, burger stands, and a carousel is among the leading lots of the Christmas Antique Toy Auction. The piece was once a store display at Baranger Studios. Another available store display is an animated toy depicting six workers polishing a large diamond ring.
Roullet and Decamps was a 19th and 20th-century French toy company. The upcoming Christmas sale features several of their toys, including a tiger on a ball that rotates clockwise. The tiger that sits on top of the ball has a movable jaw and a nodding head. For sports and toy enthusiasts, a baseball bank by J. & E. Stevens is noteworthy. It is a cast-iron, mechanical bank. The inscribed instructions read, “To operate, place a coin in the hand of the Pitcher, and press the Lever.” View and bid for all the lots exclusively on Bidsquare.
