A clockwork toy Carter Paterson and Pickfords van made by Triang as part of the Minic Vehicles range, model 22M.

The van has a red cab, dark green haulage area with curved upper side edges, silver running boards, and silver wheel hubs and black tyres.

The Carter Paterson and Pickfords name is emblazoned along the upper side as white dark-outlined text against a bright red strip, and below this there is an image of a (desert?) scene with orange ground and a yellow sky, with a grey elephant and the slogan Send your trunk ahead.
