He was from DDR, made by Plaho.
Then I realised I already had the gorilla and the squirel from Plaho :

The human figueres have fine sculpturing , - at LAST a farmer`s wife with
strong arms, and a bearing that shows her burden is heavy :

I ended up with quite a box of Plaho-figueres.
Most are in bags with sort of brass closing. I have to consider before I take them out Wink

Shetland ponies, of course :

They may not of a quality to measure Britains or the like.
However, they are a a bit of history, - I LOVE them cheers

Congratulations on your first Plaho's Susanne! cheers
Don't be so sad or cruel about them, they have some value, when not even much...

The Hyena, Gorilla and Squirrels are copies of the original Lineol models!
I just bought the original Lineol model of the hyena a short time ago, and its on his way to me already! cheers
Here is my VEB Plaho model:

And i think, that the black panthers are very nice figurines too!

The official name of the company is VEB(Volkseigener Betrieb) Plaho, which means, that it is a company of the people, which was not the case of course in the former DDR.

They have a big line of production, with many models, which are not all in scale with eachother.
A lot of the models are direct copies of the older Lineol models, because they bought the moulds of those figurines, which makes them even more better!
They have many colour-variations, as the company was often short of materials, and used the stuff they had before the DDR gor free again...

Next to that, it is special to have figurines from a country that doesn't exist anymore.
You can get them out of the bags, as it is simple to put them back in.
Besides to that, they are still very available, besides from some rare figurines.
I bought a few last week again too.
I have most of them, besides from a few, and some colour-variations.
I do have a catalogue too, made by a collector, which has all of the models.

The hunter with dog is one of the rarer items, i do have the dog only. Crying or Very sad
You should never pay more then 2 euro a piece for them, besides from the rare items.
When you hunt for their dino's, you have to pay 15 euro's or even up to 40 euro's a piece for them! Shocked

By the way, i have about 20 doubles for you, if you like them, maybe we can trade something... Rolling Eyes

Thank you, my friends ! I am happy it is not only me, who likes them Very Happy

Willy, it is really a great help you give, now I know a lot more about them, which makes them more exiting cheers
Actually I bought a catalogue last week. It should be here soon, I hope.
About your doubles, - I will send you a PM, but I doubt I have anything that you dont have already Laughing

Of course you are not the only one Susanne!
They are not bad as some people might think, specially when you know that a lot of these figurines are little plastic copies of the old Lineols! Very Happy

I think, the catalogue you bought, is the same that i have, it was made by a private-person who is collecting them too.
It is very usefull when you collect these figurines indeed.

I did send you a PM with pics of my doubles too, see i hear about that.
The fact that there are colour- and paint-variations makes them even nicer i think... Rolling Eyes
