20 Nov, 2015 10:00 AM

Lacy Scott and Knight are please to announce the Specialist Single Owner Sale titled "The Rodney Count Collection" comprising of approximately 700 lots of Toys and Collectors Models, collected over a lifetime by local enthusiast Rodney Count.

"Rodney lived all his life in the village of Fordham, Cambridgeshire, and whilst a  very keen gardener, it was clear from the moment we stepped foot into Rodney's House, that his main passion was Toy Collecting.  Rodney's enthusiasm began 50 years ago when his wife Marion, after travelling to her native Scotland, brought back a single toy as a present for Rodney.  From this moment on, Rodney and Marion indulged their interest with a passion as they regularly visited toy fairs, swap-meets, steam rallies and toy auctions, buying a diverse range of toys but with a strong liking for tinplate toys of all shapes and size. However, as the collection begun to grow, other toy categories begun to enter the frame, and these include Dinky Toys, Corgi Toys, Matchbox, Spot-On, Britain's, British and German tinplate and much, much more!!

Local toy enthusiast Rodney Count built this collection over 50 years.
