In the next auction of Bertoia Auctions there are unfortunately only five Martins/Bonnet toys, but there are many other beautiful pieces in this auction.
A diverse sale that is so full, they had to add a second day!
Headlining the still and mechanical banks is the second half of the Ned Bauer Collection from Ohio.
Doorstops and cast iron cars, pressed steel trucks and horse drawn toys, and stuffed bears and animals will be offered.
Celluloid and pre-war Japanese toys will share the stage with comic character toys.
A nice grouping of nodders and bobbleheads will be complimented by Japanese action figures and pop art.
Motorcycles, penny toys, and steam engines from the Paul Hale Collection will represent European toys along with German and American trains and accessories ranging from 0 to 1 gauge.
After the auction, I will publish the realized prices for the Martins.
Regarding the objects described in this article, I do not make a statement about condition or value.
