Price: £160.00

Notes

A lovely example from this popular range of circus models issued between 1964-70. Really close to mint Bedford TK Truck with spun wheels. Complete “CHIPPERFIELDS CIRCUS” labels on both sides and, of course – two giraffes (mother and baby, so correct).
A barely handled example that comes with both wing mirrors present and notably intact and complete with the little reflective pieces too.
Quite a late issue with those darker pigments on the giraffes.

A little mark at the front bumper, a small stray flick of factory silver at a wheel arch and a dot or two besides (that you have to hunt for). Often missing, this model still has the white card inner packing which protects the model and especially those wing mirrors, when in the box.

The pictorial box is bright and complete. Note the storage crumple at one edge and a light crease, with some handling wear too. Shopkeeper’ s period price label at an end flap.
