I finally managed to find and purchase a set of Antonio Vitali toy boats. They fit beautifully in my three year old's hand. He loves them as as he sails them across the floor and I love their design aesthetics.

Some lucky person purchased a whole collection of Vitali toys at a great price
$75 got them an aeroplane, boats, and a few wheeled vehicles.
I particularly like the boats . I would have liked to be the keen eyed person who spotted them for $22 but they were already sold.
Maybe next time?

A recent ebay auction saw a large number of Vitali vehicles sell for a fraction of usual prices. [two airoplanes for only $20] These well loved toys oozed character.
With strong interest in Japan, Switzerland, Australia, Argentina, Germany and the UK. I suspect the low prices reflect the sellers reluctance to post outside the US.
