Corgi Mahogany Prototype Ford Consul. - the 1st Corgi toy from 1956. Pictured on page 27 of The Great Book of Corgi. A wonderful early prototype from 'The New European' Collection.
An exceptional collection of prototypes were purchased by ?The New European? Collector, largely originating from two well-documented sources i.e. the auction of the property of Marcel Van Cleemput at Sotheby?s Auction House in 1999 and the Losch Auction House in Germany during 2000.
A sensational prototype of the first Corgi Toy fashioned in mahogany of the Ford Consul! Measures approx. 9cms.
Made during 1956, this is a beautifully fashioned item – with ‘FORD’ lightly scratched into the underside.
