Early 1950s Set - The great era for Escalado
Great Escalado condition. Full working order, with all necessary straps, brackets, rubber, etc. The handle on the ratchet box is wound to vibrate the canvas race track and the horses move along to the finish line, negotiating the 'fences' on the way. Great fun and a favourite for many decades. This is an early version with metal horses. The later versions with plastic horses were not as successful as they hadn't got the necessary weight to keep a straight line on the track. See elsewhere in this section for original sets of metal horses bought when the Chad Valley factory closed down.
