Charbens Toys – hard to find Plastic 1/32 scale Circus Lion Tamer (red plastic), Sitting Tiger (early dark brown painted body, green base) and Performing Elephant (dark brown base) – overall in Good to Very Good used condition with only minor paint loss [Provenance: from the Sheffield Collection of plastic and lead figures collected by a husband and wife over many years “It was late spring this year when I was asked to view the contents of a modest three storey house and from the moment I opened the door, I knew this was not the conventional fare. The gentlemen concerned had some serious collecting habits, one of which was model and toy figures, predominantly from the early 20th century, right up to today. It is very difficult to say how many, because of the style of lifetime collector he appears to have been. There were 10,000, 20,000, 30,000 – maybe more, with the majority not in boxed sets but as loose examples, with a cataloguing and sorting system and reference book collection that showed a real insight into the subject. On display, in storage, in display drawers, they were all over the house, and they sat alongside other collections.”]
