Alfa Romeo P2 tinplate model. French c.1935
A highly collectable and rare second edition, teal-blue coloured Alfa Romeo P2 tinplate toy by CIJ
(Compagnie Industrielle du Jouet)with treaded tyres, all-original filler caps and working steering. French, circa 1935.
Length: 22 inches (55 cms).
The P2 tinplate toy was produced by CIJ between 1924 and 1939 in response to the competition success
of Vittorio Jano’s design for Alfa Romeo - one of the most successful Grand Prix racing cars ever.
The P2 models were finished in a variety of striking colours, and this very rare teal-blue colour
demonstrate the achievements of one of the finest toymakers of the era. Literature: The Art of the Tin toy,David Pressland.
