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" / "Joint Parcels Services" 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.
