Triang Minic 1950's promotional London Transport Double Decker
Triang Minic 1950's promotional London Transport Double Decker Bus - very scarce tinplate clockwork example produced as a rare promotional item for London Transport advertising of No.20 Cranbourn Street London WC2 in the 1950's. The model is finished in the standard orangey red with cream centre band, cast metal hubs with thick rubber tyres but has applied paper adverts on the nearside "Steradent" and on the offside "Transport Advertising Gets Things Moving". The destination transfers feature the address of the company, other paper stickers are applied to front and rear showing advertisements could be placed on full size buses. Also unusually this model has "British Transport" transfers to lower side panels instead of the usual London Transport. Some nicks and scratches and wear to some of the transfers and paper stickers, with some paint loss to the rear of the roof above the rear window - otherwise a Good very scarce example. This model is the first that Vectis has had and would probably have been used by sales representatives to demonstrate advertising space on full size buses.
Estimate: £200 - £300
