Vintage Lead Farm Chickens Chick Coop 1950s - Taylor Johillco Cherilea Britains For Sale
Vintage Lead Farm CHICKENS CHICK COOP 1950s - Taylor Johillco Cherilea Britains
There was a sitting hen in the coop, probably gone broody and unpleasant - her sisters are pleading to be allowed in but NO
I love chickens or hens and this classic and popular chicken coop that was made in London by toymaker F G Taylor after WW2 between 1946 and the mid 1950s
The coop is in reasonable condition - one leg has been knocked off but it still stands well and I have given it a new matchstick leg
It also has a dent and a tiny hole in the back
Apart from this it has just a little playwear and rubbing
Most of the hens and the running chick were made by Britains
The super rooster was made by Cherilea and the tiny round chick was once one of three on a long base
John Hill and Co made the pecking hen and the standing hen with the swirly tail - I think that the latter might have been repainted
The cockerel chicks and hens are in great condition for their age
All of the chickens are hollowcast lead and they all have some amount of playwear - some more than others
The coop is approx 42 mm or over 1 1/2 inches tall at the front
