An early 20th Century French Renault pedal car topped the prices at Sheffield Auction Gallery’s toy sale on June the 4th. The Devillaine Brothers machine was in a remarkably complete condition for its age and, although showing signs of wear, still raced away to £1,350 hammer price between two telephone bidders, against a £500-800 pre-sale estimate.
“This car travelled all the way from France for the sale and despite the condition it shows how genuine rarity holds it’s value. I am delighted with the result”, commented Specialist Valuer and Auctioneer John Morgan.
