This is a Vintage Advertising Toy, Model of Yesteryear: Y-12-A, 1899 Horse drawn Bus advertising for Lipton's Tea, introduced in 1959. It measures 3 1/4" long and 1 3/4" high and is in Very Good condition with no box. There is a minimal amount of wear in small spots mostly on edges. The paint is still rich in color. I photographed this in sunlight so a lot of what may look like wear on the edges is really just reflected light. On the bottom it says: "Made in England by Lesney NO 12".

Among the advertisements painted on the sides are: Lipton's Tea, London General Omnibus Company Limited, Victoria & King's-Cross, Hudson's Soap, Sanita's, Picadilly Circus, Coleman's Mustard, Heinz and Horlicks.

I always describe items to the best of my knowledge and ability, I may not always know how old it is or many details about it, but if I know it, it will be in my description.

This item ships First Class. Contact me if you want it sent Priority.
