They look lovely - my display cabinets are getting very cramped now too - I'm going to have to move my porcelain and resin figurines out and get a display specially for them.

Thank you HK

I have alloted one shelf full , for my porcelain souvenirs , wooden and resin miniatures and other misc. collections . That I will never remove , as all my souvenirs are nostalgic of my traveling and tours

All said and done , I love the cramped and crowded look of my collections and I enjoy seeing all the animals one behind the other , with profound curiosity [ After all , a collector needs rich presence of his vast collections ]

Yes - I need to make room for new schleich papo and bullyland figurines though I would never sell my porcelain or resin animals either, I'll just move them to another cabinet when I get one.

Of course, the two St-Bernards are "Made in Germany". It's only relatively recently that they started producing "Made in China" figures. They still produce "Made in Germany", but they are harder and harder to get, because Schleich doesn't seem to export them anymore. Only their water-loving "1/32 scale animals are marked "Made in Portugal".

Honestly speaking , I didn't find groass difference in Germany and China schleichs . Infact , some China versions were better than Germany ones.

Oflate, I could see that the new animals released from China are tremendously beautiful and outstanding. May be the schleich people focus complete attention on China as it is the sole production unit nowadays.

But as far the vintage animals are concerned , I was a big fan of Portugal and Germany versions .
