This wooden toy steam train engine by Tri-Ang oozes charm. Dating to the 1920s / '30s it comes from the era when things were made properly - mainly made of wood with hand-painted details, metal wheels with rubber tyres (that have developed flat spots on the bottom from decades of sitting). There's a small, printed transfer stuck inside the cab showing the coal fire and the controls!

Years of play have caused numerous scuffs and scrapes and a transfer that would've been on the right side has been lost to time (but is evidenced by a brighter area of red paint). It's no collector's piece but is joyously decorative and surely the appeal of a vintage toy is that you can see the years of fun that it's provided - true character...

The loco engine measures 49cm long x 20.5cm high x 15cm wide

I’m Louis Walpole. Over a decade of working for and alongside some of the best antique dealers in the country at London’s renowned Portobello Road have helped me to form a detailed understanding of, and appreciation for, a diverse array of antiques. In 2016, after ‘dabbling’ in the trade since childhood I decided to follow my heart and (ignoring a myriad of people advising against it) leave my salaried job to trade full time. Since then I have travelled around England and Western Europe collecting the pieces that particularly interest me. These pieces loosely follow the themes of; automotive, advertising, scientific and industrial. I have a select number of items on display in Atlam on Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm.

If you would like to view any of my pieces in London, please get in touch to confirm that they’re at the shop or to arrange for me to take them there for you. It may also be possible for me to bring items to your home/bar/garage/pub etc so that they can be fully appreciated in-situ, again please just get in touch and we’ll see what can be organised."
