Britains Merchandise Case




Here's a very nice vintage toy soldier case I saw at an online auction.  It was used by retailers to display Britains toy soldiers.  I could relate to it as I remember a similar kind of case at my childhood toy store that was for matchbox cars.  You could buy the neat little cars by number. 






The description from the aution site:








This edition of Old Toy Soldier can be viewed on line for free here.








This is the kind of Matchbox case I remember at Jason's of Woodhaven (Queens, NY).

  1. The Matchbox car case brings back memories! My grandmother used to take my brother and I to Jasons for a matchbox car and some baseball cards after we waited hours in line with her at the bank on the corner of Jamaica Ave and Woodhaven Blvd.

  2. Hi Gregory. My brother and I have the actual case from Jason's in our posession (Actually in my 10 year old nephew's posession). At about the time the store was closing we asked if we could buy it, and to our surprise the woman behind the counter said yes. It's a treasured family object!
