Van man wins

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Objects Of Desire -

AN un­usual French bisque socket-head doll in a pink silk dress, on a plinth stand­ing next to a tree stump con­tain­ing a nest of feath­ered chicks, went for £4,465 at Ten­nants of Ley­burn – 11 times more than ex­pected, while a Steven­son Brothers dap­ple grey rock­ing horse made £1,880. A yel­low Corgi Ghia-Fiat 600 Jolly made an im­pres­sive £384 at Vec­tis of Thorn­aby, while a rare pre-war Dinky de­liv­ery van (Hornby Se­ries) in blue and or­ange went for £768, against an up­per

es­ti­mate of £260.
