Britain's Circus

This is one of my special toys. It's one of the last made by Britain"s Toy Company in their English factory. They're all made in China now. Ironically, the paint job by the Chinese factory is better, more exact. But there is an old school quality to these figures that I love.

Have you seen the Chipperfield Circus sets manufactured by Dinky? They are very nice and usually paired with the Britains circus sets in many collections.

I will check out the Chipperfield sets. All I know of Dinky Toys are the great cars. However, I'm still partial to Matchbox but that's another story. Thanks you for the lead.
