Once-in-a-lifetime Toys and banks Auction: April 14 > Donal Markey Collection of antique toys

Famous collection of antique toys spurs interest in hobby |
Featuring Pressed Steel, Pedal Cars, Cast Iron Toys, Marx Toys, Ephemera, a few more Comic Character Toys and a handful of more surprises. Recognized as the largest automotive toy collection ever assembled. The Donald Kaufman Collection has grossed nearly $11 Million at public auction over the last two years and will certainly be remembered by collectors and toy aficionados for years and years to come. Join us for this final auction which marks the grand finale to a collectors’ legacy. In addition to toys and banks, 19th- and early 20th-century advertising signs and pieces of folk art — paintings, frames, lawn ornaments and other hand-made decorations — that Markey filled his home with will also be for sale.

“Some of these toys in this collection you’ll only see once in your lifetime,” said Saunders-Watson.
“Auction houses put tags on the toys, letting collectors know who owned it before them. It will mean something to have a toy owned by Donal Markey.” (Click image to zoom)
