At Bamfords we are holding a toy sale next week with all pictures on flickr and our web site. Looking forward to showing you what we have on offer.
Made in the 1930's by Distler in Germany, this Mickey Mouse collectable toy is also known as the "Hurdy Gurdy". Though it dates more than 70 years ago, it is in near mint condition and comes complete with Minnie Mouse dancing atop the organ and with the rarer coil-tail version.
This toy was last valuated in the late 90's at over US$35,000.
This vintage toy is from the Mint Museum of Toys Collection.
