Cherished childhood playthings of yesteryear, vintage toy cars are now highly coveted collectibles. Illustrated with over a hundred colorful photographs, Wheels is a delightful history of toy motor vehicles from the 1890s up to the present.

The renowned Christie's collection provides wonderful examples of vintage fire trucks, delivery vans, coupes, hot rods, roadsters, and motorcycles manufactured by famous toy makers from around the world, exhibiting the fine craftsmanship and ingenuity of more than a century of toy making. Wheels is a rare treat for anyone who admires vintage toys or spent childhood days happily "driving" toy cars around the neighborhood.Christie's, established over 200 years ago, is among the world's preeminent auction houses for fine art and collectibles.
