Antique & vintage toys at four day VCA auction

Victorian Casino Antiques are holding a mammoth four day auction from May 30 – June 2, jam-packed with over 1,000 antique toys, rare tin windups, robots, Japanese race cars, advertising collectibles, slot machines, jukeboxes and coin-ops.

Day one focuses on 150 figural cookie jars, including some rare examples. The rare Champ jars designed by Don Winton for DeForest are one highlight, as well as a series of Blinkies, and prototype Popeye and Olive Oyl jars.

Another angle of interest on day one is a stunning array of antique sewing accessories, such as brass and ceramic figural measuring tapes, needle cases and pin cushions.

Day two introduces the toys. Japanese race cars are a highlight on this day, including the Atom Je A-58v, the largest of the toy cars made in the 1950s, estimate $800+.

A smoking Popeye litho tin toy made in Japan, also in the 1950s, is in working condition, his pipe lighting up as he smokes. It is expected to see upwards of $320.

A litho tin Tom Corbett Space Cadet rocket, 1940s,is valued at $200+.

Days three and four focus on VCA’s speciality – antique slot machines, coin-ops, trade stimulators and jukeboxes. A circa 1938 Jennings Triplex Chief bell slot machine is an anticipated highlight, with a low estimate of $1,600. A selection of antique cash registers round off the sale.

Also on the last day, a full size replica B9 Robot, identical life-size duplicate of the robot from the 1960s television series ‘Lost in Space’, which talks, moves and lights up, is valued at $4,000-$40,000.
