THE EMMANUEL RODRIGUE COLLECTION PART II
The RSL Auction Company auctioned the majority of Mr. Rodrigues banks and toys on June 2nd, 2007. The record breaking sale grossed over 1.7 million dollars. Upon our first meeting with Mr. Rodrigue we were only able to retrieve the bulk of his bank collection along with a small number of his extensive toy collection. In early May we traveled back to Paris and gathered all of his toys and remaining banks. Mr. Rodrigue is in the process of downsizing to a more intimate apartment and there is simply no room for the toys. With the addition of a nice still bank collection, several great American cast iron toys and the finest "made in Canada" bank collection known, the collections will be offered in entirety at auction.
