Australian Matchbox Memorabilia
We are pleased to be able to offer this important historical record of Matchbox in Australia from the 1960s to the 1980s, collected during that time by the late David Leeman, who was the head of Matchbox in the Australia and Asia region. The collection is being sold by his family. Mr Leeman's extensive collection of Matchbox models – which included every item ever released in Australia – was donated to the Powerhouse Museum, but the museum did not take the collection of memorabilia, which we believe is just as important and perhaps the ultimate Matchbox collectable in Australia.
This collection includes a scrapbook containing every Matchbox advertisement published in Australia during Mr Leeman's time, a set of the in-house Matchbox magazines, dozens of photographs, important business correspondence covering more than two decades, a 1969 Queen's Award to Industry plaque, and a 1969 16mm Movietone newsreel of the Queen visiting the Lesney factory in England.
This is a unique record of Matchbox in Australia from the 1960s to 1980s.
