Tin men cometh
I browse eBay to see what is out there,looking sometimes for bargains at others just for fun. I had no intention of buying let alone go off in a new direction but I did both. I magnified a sale item and could not believe my eyes, but more anon. I bought , I waited, they arrived-
Now for the reason I bought them. Regular visitors to the blog know I am interested in all things Danish. I particularly am fascinated by the Late Scandinavian Bronze Age and its material culture. The Sun Chariot etc etc. I have the Foundry 28mm figures not to mention books and articles galore.
When looking online at this eBay horde I spied a Lur horn and warriors to match. Spirited, well animated tin Bronze Age Scandinavian fellows , well that was me! Here they are in all their glory
Stunning! Can anyone identify the maker for me,I am out of my comfort zone re figures? All help gracefully received. I really would like to get some more of these fellows to create a decent force , can you help?
