Does anybody know if these 261 lots were from just the one collection?

Given the condition of the sets pictured and the detailed catalogue I'm thinking it was a private collection under the hammer.

Always wanted a Fada bullet in blue and orange. Might never get it $1,500 though. Rather spend that sort of money on an 'Empire State' Radiolette in any colour.

$1,500 would buy you about half of a Radiolette at the moment.

One sold recently on eBay for $3,451. (Item 110681665947)

That's about the average for a white marble job. The brown and black ones are cheaper though I've seen a jade one go for just over $20,000 a few years ago. Chances are I won't be getting one of those either unless the big red ball falls through my roof. Grin
