Notes

This sought-after, early issue Gift Set (1962-66) was available at the time as a mail order set. This is one of them- correct that it comes with the plain card packing sleeve and Mail Order label at a lid end.

Colourful pictorial box is a delight, with a full colour, vivid Chipperfields Circus scene depicted. So often found with wear/damage – this example has survived better than most. Little strip of surface loss due to the removal of old tape which kept the lid closed and a little staining nearby. Mail Order label complete on one short lid end, the other is incomplete.
