Please look over the photos carefully. Now on to the description - Hello loveys! A little something different to add to your collection-a Vintage Made In Great Britain Tin Play Set Hospital. Based on the popular British TV program Emergency Ward 10 that ran for several years in the 1960s.
It was a night time soap opera that was broadcast 2 nights a week & was about the triumphs & travails of the nurses, doctors & patients. A British toy company called Mettoy manufactured this play set in the 1960s.
Very hard to find a tin toy hospital, even Marx did not attempt a regular hospital, just the Babyland Nursery. This hospital came with figures & accessories.The heads on the figures barely came up to the bottom of the windows. Some of the figures are by Marx including the 3 identical nurses. Hard to find doctor figures in this scale but the doctor in the intensive care ward was actually made by Mettoy & is based on the Emergency Ward 10 character Dr. Alan Dawson, name is on the base of the figure.
Had another doctor & nurse but used them in a shopping mall i made recently. Other doctor figure by the ambulance has no makers mark. He is waiting for attendantswho are nowhere to be found! To remove the unfortunate fellow from the ambulance.
From the looks of him he arrived just in time, he appears to be Code Blue! Other figures include patients & babies, one baby is attached to one of the 3 Marx Babyland Nursery Beds that are just the right size for this 1:24 scale hospital. Other items include 2 hospital beds, operating table, surgical instrument table & wheelchair by Playmobil. Some of the other pieces are Made In Hong Kong.
The ambulance is made by Ideal & rear doors open. All of the items are loose, the operating room's nonworking light was made by me & is attached to ceiling w/bit of wax.Looks like it can be reattached w/string & then the "Lift" should work again, there is a little crank on top that turns to raise & lower the elevator, see photo 11. There are 2 clear plastic walls that came w/the set & can be placed however you like. Size of hospital is 16 & 1/8 H to top of elevator. 24 & 1/2L at base.
11 & 1/8"D at base, the actual building is 9"D. From floor to ceiling the height is about 5 inches on both floors. All of the doors & windows are intact. Doors open as do windows on building but of course windows on elevator do not open.
Door on top section of elevator is missing. Only 1 tab remains on roof section of elevator. There are areas of rust, mostly on base. Bit of soil here & there on some figures & accessories.For adult collectors only, small items pose choking hazard to infants & young children. Will be sent put together as shown, top part of elevator will be placed inside building to reduce size of box. Please ignore the hairs on beds in photo 4.
