This horse-drawn London bus is in red with tan seats and driver - the driver has a black hat. The lower deck ceiling is also tan. Wheels are charcoal black metal spoked. With 'Liptons Tea' adverts on the upper deck sides and 'London General Omnibus Company Limited - Kings Cross and Victoria' below. There are also advertising decals front and rear; eight decals in all! The 2 cast metal horses are brown with white manes and tails, and gold collars. This is the later version with two rivets securing the drawbar to the bus.
In good-to-excellent condition. There is some rubbing to the paint on the horses' heads and the driver's hat, and the corners of the upper deck seat backs. The decals are almost fully intact, just a couple of nibbles on the edges. The type D3 box is bright and crisp, with only very slight edge wear. A price of 4/- (four shillings) is written on the front.
