SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Turner Auctions + Appraisals will offer Bears, Dolls & Trains on Sunday, November 15, 2020.

In addition to many groupings, the sale includes vintage Steiff Limited Edition and Collectors Edition lots, and a number of Steiff hand puppets. There are also large store display animals from the fabled toy store FAO Schwarz – cheetah, puma, penguin, donkey, lion and more – and a very large giraffe and pig.

A highlight is an antique JDK 221 Googly.

Many train lots are O gauge from diverse manufacturers: Lionel, Weaver, Williams, Western Hobbycraft, MTH, K-Line, Atlas, Sunset and Menards.

S gauge trains include Lionel, Gilbert, and American Models. Among the train accessories are bascule and lift bridges, a fuel station, control tower, track gang, buildings and vehicles.
