1960S CHAD VALLEY METAL ESCALADO HORSES & JOCKEYS
£12 Set of Five
Beware buying the 1990s green-boxed versions of Escalado. So often we get contacted after a disappointing Christmas where the light plastic horses fall over and the race never happens. Buy the right thing - the vintage sets with metal horses!
The horses here were probably the last Chad Valley had made for the game in the 1970s, before they ceased production. They were the property, until recently of the son of an employee at Chad Valley
When first produced in the 1920s the horses were bigger, heavier and painted in some beautiful colours in great detail. Every ten years or so, the box designs changed, along with the horse weighting and colouring changing; lighter and painted in less detail, resulting in the one colour horse and jockey from 60s onwards.
One set of five different colours is £12. We also have odds for sale at £3 each.
CUSTOMISED HORSES: We have been asked on a a few occasions if we will paint jockeys in the colours of a particular owner with the horses also colour specific, chestnut, grey, bay, etc., The answer is yes. It is very time consuming but we will quote you a price when asked.
