Auctions | Boats! Soldiers! Boats!!!!!

Let's hope Santa has a New York bureau because Sotheby's will be auctioning off the rest of Malcolm Forbes' toy collection on December 17 -- and each is enough to make you scream and cry on Christmas Day (or any of the other 364 days of the year). 

These don't even touch on the sick collection of toy soldiers (whole armies and wars! - but not photographed properly to fit into the chart).

No 1. - (Lot 216) Alexander the Great, Circa 1930s-1950s, Est. $2,000-$3,000

No. 2 - (Lot 120) Fleischmann Clockwork Gunboat, Germany, Circa 1930s, Est. $3,500 to $5,500

No. 3 - (Lot 22) Bing Clockwork Racing Scull, Germany, Circa 1912, Est. $2,500-$4,500

No. 4 - (Lot 36) A Collection of Submarines from Five of Germany's Finest Toymakers, Germany, 1900-1936, Est. $2,500,$2,300

No. 5 - (Lot 16) Clockwork Musical Dancing Sailors Picture Automation, 1890, Est. $2,500-$3,500


  1. Alexander really is great - wish he were coming home with me.
