These little cuties sold in our Etsy shop All the Rage Vintage ( AllTheRageVintageCA ) awhile ago but they are just too sweet to not share here.
Not sure if they were genuine ARI ( August Reidler) dolls as I do not recall examining their backs for the usual triangular ARI marking. The two girls do have the red shoes that are often telltale signs that they are authentic ARI.
Vintage Lucas Key Ignition Switch 31187B Retro Car Part British MG Jaguar
It has been suggested that this may fit an MG or a Jaguar. Joseph Lucas Ltd of Birmingham England made genuine spare parts for many makes of cars including MG, Jaguar, AC, Austin Healy, Lotus, Mini and others.
The part is numbered 31187B and the box is numbered 31216A. They may not be original to one another. The key is marked Wilmot Breeden.
It was suggested to me that it is the back part of an ammeter. It also has been suggested to me that:
“These were sold along with the Lucas Inspection Lamps. The piece would mount somewhere in the car and you would hook battery voltage to the terminals. This provided power to the inspection lamp. These inspection lamps were used for roadside emergencies like flat tires and such, at night. – John K W”.
Lucas made parts for MG, Triumph, Jaguar, Austin Healy, Mini, Ac, Lotus and more.
