MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN, THIS IS SCARCE TINPLATE SPACESHIP, CAT NO 194. FIRST SEEN IN A WELLS BRIMTOY ADVERT FROM 1953 AND WAS ALSO SPOTTED IN A ADVERTISER NEWSPAPER DATED 15th MAY, 1954. THE DESIGN POSSIBLY TOOK INSPIRATION FROM A DRAWING IN THE BRITISH SPACEMAN MAGAZINE SPACESHIP.This in very good condition for its age. The friction motor works well but the spark feature no longer works. The toy has surface scuffs, scratches and wear throughout, and a little faded to the top half. For its age and rarity, this is superb though. These are exceptionally rare toys in any condition to be honest, but this one is a fine 100% original example.
The toy measures approx 23.5cm in length. PLEASE VIEW OUR OTHER ITEMS FOR SALE AT EDWINS EMPORIUM, WE STOCK A WIDE RANGE OF VINTAGE DIE CAST TOYS, SPACE TOYS AND VARIOUS OTHER COLLECTIBLES!
