Chipperfield's Circus was the name of a famous British family circus. The show toured Europe and the Far East. The dynasty goes back more than 300 years, making it one of the older family circus dynasties. During the 1960s circuses were extremely popular, so it was not surprising that during the period between 1960 and 1970 Corgi Toys should release ten Chipperfield’s Circus models, plus four Gift Sets. All were produced with the co-operation of the circus itself.These models proved to be highly collectable, so in 1994 Corgi Classics launched a new series of twelve Chipperfield’s Circus models. Again these proved extremely popular at the time, so futher additions were made. (Encyclopedia of Model Collecting)
