  Paul Rouffa in Forum 64 posted the first Matchbox, a celebration of Queen Elizabeth's coronation.  It reminded me of this older variation by Corgi, labeled "1902 State Landau - Silver Jubilee 1977."  True to Corgi's practices, it is probably somewhat larger than 1/43.  It has been the centerpiece of my "parade cars" display for several years.  I also like its depiction of the Queen's corgi trailing along behind. (I should have dusted a little before taking these pictures.  Sorry.)

  I like parade vehicles, and Corgi made a special carriage with this one!

Very nice. I am interested in the round display case. Is that a round table with glass top and sides?

@ed-davis   That's it, Ed.  I found two of these at a yard sale several years ago.  Each had problems, but I was able to combine the best of both into one table, and it's been here ever since.  I remember stopping at that sale on the way home from work and I've been retired since '02, so this table has some years on it!  That's okay, since so do I.

That is great looking table, and does a nice job displaying your models.
