Notes

This attractive Gift Set was inspired by the t.v. show ‘The Avengers’ and was issued between 1966-69.
It comprises:
1) John Steed’s Bentley in red and black finish, complete with all parts, and including the figure of John Steed at the wheel. Very close to mint condition. Rub to a running board edge and the occasional tiny mark to the paint. Silver spoked wheels. Fine original tyres.

2) Emma Peel’s Lotus Elan S2 is in bright, white finish. Virtually mint, original condition. Suspension on shaped spun wheels. Fine original tyres.
Original figure of Emma Peel.

This set comes with three plastic umbrellas. These are notably the originals – so often they can go astray, particularly bearing in mind how small they are and how they were never stored in a packet but merely slotted into holes on the plinth. So many that we see have (pretty decent) replacements but they do lack the fine detailing of the originals. These originals have the furling details to the ‘rolled-up’ cloth part of the umbrella and delicate details on the handle, fine point at the base. Little details perhaps but really nice to see!
Inner card plinth is a pleasing sight with bright graphics on clean card. Just one little tear. Both pull tabs have had a skilful repair. Light wear besides.
