1130 Bedford Chipperfields Horse Trailer

70 GBP
A beautiful example of this item with no marks to the red paintwork and bright blue top half.

This is an early edition, possibly a sample as it comes from the Wilford Collection. Percy Wilford was a Senior Model Maker at Corgi's Northampton factory and his grandson has asked me to find good homes for a number of items found in his family drawers. It has no obvious markings or differences, however, to the issued product so it is sold in that respect.

It is exceptionally bright and fresh. Often the blue plastic elements fade but this has retained its colour. The six horses are all still packed in the original folded card pieces as this has been untouched for 50 years. The ramps open and the cab can be detached and the mirrors are still in place.

A super example with an interesting history!
