The short-lived British toy firm Sacul was founded in 1951 by a Mr Lucas, who was a former employee of Timpo. He created his company name by simply reversing his own surname.
Sacul first made high-quality, detailed medieval knights, but its specialism became the ‘civilians’ and TV, film and other promotional figures in particular. As the firm folded in 1955, most are considered rarities.
In near-mint condition with the original illustrated box deemed excellent, this lot has a guide of $600-1200 at Old Toy Soldier Auctions in Pittsburgh on September 9.
