A Private Collection of Indian Diecast Toys | Coming Soon!


Our Vintage & Collectible Toys Specialist, Glen, has recently acquired a fantastic private collection of Indian Diecast toys that we're excited to have up for auction soon - here's a sneak peek!


Diecast Dupes!

From the late 1960s, several Indian companies began manufacturing diecast models: Maxwell, Milton and Nicky Toys. Many of these toys produced were re-editions / close copies of the popular Matchbox, Corgi and Dinky toy model cars / commercials. Despite their attempts to replicate the models, the finish of the Indian-made replicas did not match the quality of their British counterparts!

Now, many years on, despite not being the real thing, these diecast dupes are widely appreciated by collectors as possessing a certain charm and rarity!



Coming Soon

We are looking forward to offering this exciting private collection of models as part one of our Vintage & Collectible Toy auction set to take place online on Wednesday 11th September 2024!
