This item is no longer for sale, price for reference only.
The Monty Calme landmark Corgi Collection, covering the width and breadth of Corgi models amassed over decades by an exuberant collector. The Monty Calme collection is a truly astonishing gathering of the best of Corgi models and ephemera, including rare and unique pieces and point of sale items. The largest collection we have ever seen.
A fascinating piece of Corgi history ? this wooden prototype measures 4 inches, has pencilled detailing, shaped spun wheels. Never went into full production.
Originally sold through us in 2006, this model came from an Austrian collector who had become a friend of Marcel Van Cleemput. We sold this model to ?Monty Calme? in 2006.
This is an extract from the Austrian Collector?s letter in 2006 which is a general letter of Provenance for the purchaser of his models:
