Corgi Toys 511 Chipperfields Performing Poodles
Chipperfield's Poodle Truck by Corgi Toys, No. 511. Near mint plus/boxed. From The Francis Schaffer Collection.
Issued between 1970-71.
The blue and red Chevrolet Pick Up with detailed cast wheels, is in all original condition, with comical “moving” (variview) Dachsund sticker above the cab roof and clean, fresh and bright ‘PERFORMING POODLES’ labels.
The model does not appear to have ever been removed from its box until now. Nevertheless, there are a few (must be) factory assembly marks to the paint finish (one mark on the opening hatch on one side and a couple on the roof side edge).
Comes complete with the plastic bubble which fits over the poodles and trainer on the stand. White plastic inner is notably intact.
The outer box is complete and strongly-coloured feeling very fresh, showing minimal handling. Notably the original cellophane is intact.
