#1539 Vintage Lead toy Mammoth Circus Britains 22 pieces Original owner Gorgeous

This is the first set of Britains lead toy collectibles that I am listing for a friend, to see if eBay is the correct venue for his amazing and vast set. He was a collector as a child in the 1940s and a long illness led to many gifts of these toys. The overall collection filled an entire dining room when assembled, and was quite an impressive display! He had a large cabinet with small drawers that he stored the toys, and his two daughters were very gentle with the set.
I am listing three sets this week, the Circus, the Zoo, and the Royal Navy Landing Party. If you are looking for a specific set, please email me and I would be happy to list it.
