Notes

A difficult set to find, this two-part set is an exceptional example and was issued between 1969-71. It comprises:

1) Menagerie Transporter Unit *with swivelling drawbar (not interchangeable with the 1139 version). Finished in the familiar red and blue Chipperfields colours. 3 plastic moulded cages with colourful labels, complete with plastic ‘bubble housing’, beneath which you will find the *full complement of original animal figures i.e. 2 lions (one male one female), two bears (mother and baby) and two tigers. Intact winch ring on top of all three cages. Looks unused. Detailed cast wheels and as-new original tyres. In very near mint condition.

2) 1144 Chipperfields Crane & Cage with Elephant. A Scammell Handyman MKIII in blue and red finish with a shiny jib and hook. Complete ‘Come to the Circus’ label correctly on one side only. Complete Chipperfields label on the cab. Couple of negligible marks to the paint finish. Lustrous original finish. Brown plastic cage containing the original elephant has an intact opening rear door and plastic ‘bars’ section. Chipperfield’s Circus label.
