Notes

This is a superb Chipperfields item first issued in 1968. An especially welcome find in this close to shop-fresh condition!
It contains a Scammell truck with three plastic cages containing two lions, two tigers and two bears. This example is in completely unused condition – with a bright red and blue paint finish, jewelled headlights and Chipperfields label at cab front. None of the usual rubbing to the highly detailed decorative labels on both sides. 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!)

If you are looking to fault it, there are is just a couple of little marks at the rear edge of the blue trailer.

The large cellophane-fronted box is fresh and bright with vivid colours.

C1139w8243

Feels really crisp and fresh! Intact original cellophane, too. Really clean with an as-new feel to the card. Minor handling ruffling at an end flap edge.

Not an easy Chipperfields item to find – especially in this condition.
