This is a charming pair of folk art toys dating from around the 1930s. They are representative of a Steam Shovel and truck from that period. They are well made in a primitive way and are still in good condition. The shovel which is about 550mm long has an rotating cab, winch operated lifting arm and tilting bucket. The Truck is generally in good condition although it does seem to lack windscreen supports. It has rotating front wheels and a tilting section in the back. It is 330mm long. Both vehicles have bakelite wheels with 'Made in England' embossed into them. These are lovely things that reflect the general level of craft ability around at that time.

I have other photos that I can send if you are interested.
