Online Only Toy Auction

Pook & Pook Inc. with Noel Barrett are collaborating for a fifth time on August 15th 2018. Mr. Noel Barrett, known to many across the country as the colorful toy expert on Antiques Roadshow, has been sharing his life?s passion with interested viewers for many years, doing his part to inspire younger collectors while encouraging curiosity and wonder in children of all ages. August?s online auction, available for online bidding only, serves as a tasty appetizer in anticipation of a larger catalog sale slated for early December. Both sales will include all manner of antique toys, with a little something for the child in all of us. Some highlights include a substantial collection of antique fire toys, with an extensive selection that runs the gamut across both country and decade. Japanese Bandai trucks, Mignot slush metal fire vehicles, German hill climber ladder trucks, and Dinky fire engines will be on offer. Tonka and Structo pressed steel vehicles, including cement mixers, Jeeps, tractor trailers and gasoline delivery trucks will motor across the auction block, some with original boxes. Vintage model cars will follow in the sale featuring the likeness of many classic cars, including the Oldsmobile 442, Pontiac GTO, Ford Galaxy, colorful Cadillac sedans, and one mint example of a Danbury Cadillac. Lots featuring unbuilt model cars are a perfect opportunity for young collectors to explore a new hobby. Admirers of all things teeny-tiny will appreciate the vast assortment of miniatures and doll furniture, with many chances to win the perfect piece to round out any respectable doll house. While you?re at it, why not make that doll house a doll home by finding the perfect tenant to live inside? Bisque head dolls, including several German-made examples, will follow in the sale. Young collectors still wet behind the ears may see the many doll houses on offer as the perfect starting point in which to begin their own collection. Questions? Call (610) 269-4040.
