A very rare mid-light-blue lead cast OXO Van 28d, first casting.

This is the very first, "1920's-style" version of the van, dating from 1934-35.

It has a silver grille, metal wheels, and the sides are lettered "OXO | BEEF / AT IT'S / BEST" in gold text with black outlining.

The van used the Hornby Modelled Miniatures 22d Delivery Van moulding, which was discontinued the following year.
