Default Some rather rare/scarce Composition animals to share

I had to to some cleaning in the spare bedroom where I store many of my collections that are not on display. I came across some of my Lineol and Hausser Composition animals that have been packed away since the late 1990s. It was like Christmas unwrapping them. I don't know if I mentioned it in my introduction, but I am a collector/dealer of American made glassware, china and pottery of the early 20th Century. I do consider myself an expert in this area. Most of my home and cabinets are filled with these types of items. I just don't have a lot of extra room for my small animals. I do have a large glass enclosed African diorama, but that can only hold so many figures. The majority of my animals stay carefully boxed until the time comes to display them properly. Anyway, I came across some really nice Lineol and Hausser figures. Some of these are quite rare, and you may not have seen them before. Please enjoy. In some of the pics I have included more recent Papo, Bullyland and Schleich animals for size comparisons. Sincerely, Paul

They are beautiful Paul. I especially like the platypus, kudu, fighting red deer, bison and bear. Thanks for sharing them with us.

They are absolutely beautiful, Paul. I think Lineol is one of my favourite old brands.

Thanks Paul,

What a great collection of animals. I really like a lot of their poses and/or expressions.

I agree the colouring and detail painting on the kudu may not be great, but the pose is magnificent.

Thank You Amy, HK, WH, Helen, DrN, Ken and Taos for your kind comments.

HK..now would be a perfect time to start assembling a Lineol collection. I know that prices for some of the more common figures are very reasonable and prices for the rarest figures are at least half of what they were 5 years ago. For my first sable antelopes and kudus, I paid almost $300 each. Now the kudu can be found for around $175 and the sable for about $125.

Taos: Yes, you would think that the current animal manufacturers would learn from their predecessors. All that I want the folks at Papo or Schleich to do is make a correct scale elephant.

DrN.: For now the vast majority of my small animals will have to stay boxed up. Just no room in the house for any new displays right now. I know that I had mentioned my other collections....here are some photos. Not all of these are wildlife related, but you can get an idea of why my new collections have to stay boxed. Most Sincerely, Paul

Yes, but I can only admire those of which others have, as I could never afford them myself, even at good prices like they are now. And finding room for them too! My collection is already being stored in boxes.
