An exquisite collection of miniature Dutch silver toys that were moved to London away from the clutches of the Nazis has sold for £30,000.<br />
<br />
The rare 17th century toys belonged to wealthy diplomat Edgar Michiels Van Verduynen who was appointed the Dutch ambassador to the UK in 1939.<br />
<br />
After the German invasion of The Netherlands in 1940, Baron Van Verduynen's manor house, Clingendael in The Hague, became the headquarters for the Reich Commissioner in Holland.
