PostSubject: Market Place Copying: Designer Schleich Candle Stick holders?    Sat Oct 19, 2013 12:51 am

I absolutely love BoConcept, a modern Danish furniture company that has stunning and extremely expensive furniture.  There is a store near my work place in Central London and  I popped in today to browse the latest collection.  

I suddenly came across some wildlife sculpture made of a white stone resin material.  These have a small dip in their back to hold a candle and they are quite large and heavy.  They cost £19.00 each (approx 24 euros?) and I thought they were extremely cute and well made - good enough to buy as a decoration piece or even paint and turn them into realistic animal models.  However having inspected all three animals it occurred to me that they looked very similar to Schleich models!  All three are exactly the same as Schleich with the exception of the Rhino's neck having been slightly extended and turned to the left.  I think the Schleich models have been moulded and enlarged somehow.

Is this illegitimate copying or has Schleich given permission for their animals to be copied? The models are cute.....now if they copied the Kudu then I would have bought it instantly!  See images below:

I doubt it's legal, but obviously difficult to avoid for bigger companies. Copying like this is never ok, I guess scratch 

Great discovery though Very Happy

That is very interesting! Very Happy We don't know if Schleich gave permission to copy their figures or if they're just copied. What I know is that they are inspired in Schleich like you're pointing. Sometimes I think people see Schleich copies everywhere but here there is no doubts. :)
