DENVER, PA, JULY 11, 2016 – It was a race to the finish at Morphy’s recent Premier Antique Toy, Doll, Marble, and Figural Cast Iron sale! This three-day event, held on June 24th-26th, featured world-class selections of dolls, Steiff animals, marbles, lunch boxes, banks, games, and toys – many from fine collections from across the United States. However, ships, cars, airplanes, trains, omnibuses, and other wheeled playthings from Antique Toy World contributor Jack Herbert’s collection truly got enthusiasts’ engines revving! Until quite recently, this breathtaking assembly was showcased in his tiny Greenwich Village, NY home – itself a carefully curated museum. Here are some fifth-gear highlights from the Herbert collection sale. All prices reported include Morphy’s 22% buyer’s premium.
