Very Vintage Britains Set 9153, Royal Corps of Signals Dispatch Riders & Original Worn Box. Britains Lead Soldiers Range Celebrating Pageantry-Heritage and Tradition. Name of toy and collectable soldiers is derived from a company founded by William Britain Jr. Invented the process of hollow casting.
In lead, and revolutionized the production of toy soldiers. The company quickly became the industry leader, and was imitated by many other companies, such as Hanks Bros. And John Hill and Co.The style and scale of Britain's figures became the industry standard for toy and model soldiers for many years. This is a smart Very Vintage and Rare Britains Ltd Post War Complete Box Set No 9153, a Royal Corps of Signals Dispatch Riders in Original Box, from the Britains Vintage Range. It includes 3 Mounted Motorcycle Riders in Service Dress, with the Peaked Caps, Brown boots and Gauntlets, plus one walking Corp Controller /Officer with baton in original fitted Britains Box, Un strung /loose inside box. The Despatch Riders and Officer are in surprisingly very good condition for the vintage with few paint flaws seen.
Box has some age related wear as youd expect from vintage , squoshed, stressed, tape repairs done to it, missing end flap inner leafs , and generally in poor condition. Items are un-strung, loose inside the box. My one in this Great condition for vintage as described, and strung in poor Box, will start less. The figures are all meticuously detailed , and hand painted, and detail and quality is typical of Britains.
I have several of these Soldier sets on sale, and other ones to be listed soon, also single unit Scottish pipers and other Scottish Bandsmen figures and bandsmen either already up or going up soon, including Bugler, Big Drum, Pipe major etc. Please note , some items value is such that i prefer to send it to some Countrys. At the moment, where a much higher than acceptable amount of packages appear to go amiss??
