Dinky Toys 038 Pre-War Petrol Station


Supplied from my own collection.

This tinplate ‘FILLING AND SERVICE STATION’ has rarely been out of its box. Bright, lithography with a typical period scene depicted and mechanic in the doorway.
Advertisements for ‘Pratts’, ‘Michelin Tyres’, ‘KLG Plugs, ’Dunlop’ etc. Complete roof sign in tinplate. No loss of colour vibrancy whatever.

Made in various colour combinations this example has a green floor and yellow building.

Totally original.
