Ragtime Toys is a collaborative effort rooted in 50 plus years of fine toy collecting experience by Vince Sarchese and Richard Goldberg.
As a result Vince and Richard have developed a deep appreciation and understanding of quality, collectible antique and vintage toys from Europe, the US, and Japan. In addition, they have found that toy collectors have a variety of concerns regarding the current live and Internet toy auction processes, including issues related to high buyer fees, inaccurate or incomplete listing information and excessive shipping costs.
Ragtime Toys was developed to address and minimize such concerns, and to create a comfortable and trustworthy buying forum for serious collectors.
The Premier Ragtime Toy Auction will feature a diverse selection of pre-war German tin toys from a private collection. These transportation toys will include quality examples from the following manufacturers: Bing; Distler (JDN); Bub (KBN); Lehmann; Hess; H. Fischer; Keinberger (KICO); Orobr (Reil); Tipp; Einfalt; Technofix; Levy (Gely); Gunthermann (SG); Carette; Stock; Eberl (HEN); Rosenberger (KRN); Greppert and Kelch (G &K); and, Arnold.
Other quality European toys also will be included, from manufacturers such as Rossignol (CR); Citroen; Wells; Mecavion; and Mettoy.
