Rare Dinky Toys Petrol Pump Set Seeks Highest Bidder in Upcoming SJ Auctioneers EventJan 30, 2022 15:00 EST
Dinky Toys were famous for their die-cast model vehicles made by Liverpool-based company Meccano Ltd. Meccano mainly produced toy trucks, cars, aircraft, tanks, and ships. The upcoming SJ Auctioneers event features a rare set of Dinky Toys petrol pumps by Meccano Ltd. The petrol pump and oil bin set was made with tinplate manufacturing rather than the typical die casting. Another highlight of the auction is a pair of Japanese Meiji silver trumpet vases. Japanese silver articles are known for their high purity and exceptional handiwork. The available trumpet-style vases feature embossed chrysanthemum details.
The auction also presents an Aurene glass bowl by Steuben Glass Works founder Frederick Carder. Aurene is a type of decorative glass with a gold finish similar to Tiffany’s iridescent Favrile glass. Aurene glass pieces are well-known for the beautiful combination of Art Nouveau patterns and gleaming colors. Collectors can also explore Rolex wall clocks, Lionel train models, GIA-certified diamonds, and gemstone jewelry.
