Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Lithographed & embossed tin, iron Germany, 1920s-1930s Doll & Cie, Nuremberg / Gebr. Märklin & Cie GmbH Doll electric locomotive "Bern Lötschberg Simplon" 4 green Märklin passenger coaches 17270 Green Märklin passenger coach 17310 2 green Märklin baggage cars 17320 O gauge, two-axis This is a fine, long passenger train characteristic of the 1920s and 1930s. The famous Märklin cars make a great match with this rare Swiss-style locomotive from Doll. They comprise three passenger coaches 17270 for the third class and another coach 17310 for the second and third class. Smoking and nonsmoking signs are printed on the outside; the coaches also have footsteps. All doors of the passenger coaches and baggage car can be opened. The train is in used condition with traces of age and wear such as sporadic paint chips, small scratches and dents as well as traces of corrosion. Apparently, small paint touch-ups and modifications were done but do not impair the beauty of the train. The locomotive features mechanisms for front lamps on both sides. One of the two pantographs has broken off and is enclosed. The functionality was not tested. The locomotive is marked with the Doll logo "DC"; the coaches and baggage car all show the Märklin sign on all sides. Doll The company Doll & Co was established in 1898 by the plumber Karl Doll and the businessman Isaak Sondhelm, initially producing mainly simple steam engines and production models. The company attempted to stand out from the competition through higher quality and hardly any company produced so many high-quality production models. In 1930 Doll had around 150 employees. In 1933 the company was renamed "Fränkische Metallspielwaren AG" in order to counteract dispossession by the Nazis. In 1938 the company was taken over by Fleischmann, who still used the name Doll for the old Doll products. The Doll train developed into the Fleischmann Gleichstrom (direct current) Eisenbahn (train) in O gauge, which was superseded in 1958 by HO gauge.

Large Collection of Railway Figurines, Germany, 1920s-70s

Lot 50: Large Collection of Railway Figurines, Germany, 1920s-70s

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Rubber or plastic, hand-painted Germany, around 1920s-1970s Manufacturers amongst others: Lineol and Elastolin Three big figurines by Lineol, height approx. 8 cm Ten big plastic figures, unmarked, height approx. 8 cm 15 medium-sized figures by Elastolin, height 4 cm Additional spare parts like baggage trolleys and advertising column This collection of figurines of varying sizes was made by Elastolin and Lineol in the years between 1920 and 1970 for the gauges HO to I. The figurines were made by various German manufacturers and are marked; only the more recent plastic figurines are unmarked. They provide an entertaining cross-section of the stereotypical population of a train station: travellers with their luggage, policemen, conductors, newspapermen, railroad workers and porters. Also included in the bundle are components like trolleys, an advertising column, warning signs, masts and a small cabin. Due to their age, the Elastolin and Lineol figurines show evident traces of use. A few have fractures, tears and patched parts, and some are missing bits (e.g. an arm). The paint displays slight craquelure. The unmarked figurines from the 1950s to 70s merely show traces of wear. The object's measurements range from 4.5 x 3 cm to 14 x 4 cm. The small parts measure 1 cm.
