A superb counter-top tyre compressor, dating to the inter war period of the 1920's - 1930's
This charming piece is in the best preserved condition seen by this cataloguer, retaining the metal around the guage as wel as the pipe leading from Monsieur Bibendum's mouth. These were given out in two sizes by Michelin to their agents and are highly prized. This smaller counter-top size is, arguably, more collectable than its larger "frere".
Price Achieved: £600.00
