This model is the Dinky 14a-F-3 Triporteur in Dark Blue with Grey rider. This is a restored item.

The model features a dark blue triporteur cycle with all detail cast into the body casting. Astride the cycle is a grey rider with black trousers and boots, and red cap. It appears the only replica part may be the carry-box lid as this is cast metal and I believe the original had a tin box lid. The base of the carry-box looks to be the original tin item.

All wheels consist of smooth, black, cast metal hubs with white rubber tyres on steel crimped axles.

There is no separate base plate on this model — nor can I see any manufacturer's mark or country of origin details.

This casting was used between 1935 and 1940.
