This model is the Jouef Citroen DS19 in blue plastic.

The model has a one-piece plastic body, 55mm in length. It has been molded with all body detail cast in, having representations of the front, lights, and doors cast at the front, and boot to the rear.

There is no interior of glazing.

The original wheels are red plastic, painted black, and attached to steel axles. They are held to the body by means of the base plate.

The base plate has no manufacturer's mark but does have the country of origin "Made in France" marked just below the model identifier "DS 19" (denoting this is a Citroen DS 19), to the centre top. To the centre bottom are two indications of scale "HO". The base is held in place by either glue or a tight pressure fit.

I do not know exactly when this item was issued but it would have been in 1960s.
