How about this lovely lorry to add to a Dollhouse Collection, odd you may think but this Pickford Thames Trader carries a very special load.
This articulated Pickford removal lorry is on a large scale, in a lovely dark blue, highlighted with chrome. Possibly from 1963 it comes complete with its original box. The one in the picture has battery operated headlamps. [I am not sure if this was standard in this model.] Best of all it comes with a selection of Spot-On furniture including a dining table, 4 blue dining chairs and sideboard, all packed in there own little box.
Vectis Auctions had this Thames Trader up for auction in December 2019, the estimated selling price was between £500 – £700, it actually sold for £1,100. Just a little out of my price range I think.
The above picture is from the Triang Christmas Catalogue 1961.
MY TRIANG THAMES TRADER
After writing about The Triang Thames Trader articulated lorry, commenting how much I would like one, but far out of my price range. Well I have a very clever husband, who found an old Express Delivery Triang Thames Trader lorry, and converted it into the Pickfords lorry I so wanted.
