Corgi 1139 Chipperfield's Menagerie. Very near mint/boxed. Complete with all animals in their 'bubble' housing & unused sticky pads. From The Lake District Corgi Collection.
A colourful Chipperfields item first issued in 1968.
It contains a Scammell truck with three plastic cages containing two lions, two tigers and two bears. This example has a bright red and blue paint finish, jewelled headlights and Chipperfields label at cab front. Highly detailed decorative labels on both sides are close to mint.
The plastic cages are complete and intact with all animals still in their plastic ‘bubbles’. Nice to see this example still has the black elastic bands which fasten the cages to the trailer (often missing!).
Barely a mark.
Complete and bright polystyrene inner.
The large window box is complete with original cellophane in situ (tiny puncture). Card has some age/handling wear which includes a couple of tears.
Original sticky pads on backing paper are still present.
