Pedal Power Leads The Way

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.
