Peter Francis have taken big steps in recent years to fulfill the demands of Toy Collectors and Vendors in Wales. Our regular sales are well known for the wide diversity of lots on offer and these regularly include diecast model vehicles (including Dinky & Corgi), dolls, tinplate toys, action figures, teddy bears, model railways, games and general juvenalia.
To further the demand and interest the firm has introduced a specialist online only timed auction sale of Toys and Juvenalia as an annual event which takes place in the late Autumn. This has been both successful and very interesting, bringing to light a number of rare and unusual lots which have made their mark. Particularly of note in an early sale was a tin plate Mickey Mouse money box 'Smile Please' by Saalheimer and Strauss which realised over £8000 with premium after a long online battle.
We are always happy to offer advice on items of this nature and would encourage those with lots of interest to visit us on any Friday, our open house valuation days. For those looking to buy we advise you to follow the catalogues of all our sales as well as the specialist autumn timed sale.
We look forward to seeing you.
