Price: £800.00

This item is no longer for sale, price for reference only.


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.
Pictured in The Great Book of Corgi, this model never went into production. So this is a unique and precious find (page 472 in ?The Great Book of Corgi?).



In original condition, this is a finely-detailed prototype finished in rich deep maroon and grey with maroon wheels and yellow details. Swivelling front section and moving rollers. Measuring approx. 10.5 cms.
