Great Taylor, those two are not as nice as newer versions but it seems they're much harder to find. Very Happy
I think Dave bought all stock of Britains when he was younger! Laughing It is great that he can help us finding these wonderful British figurines. Very Happy

Not quite all of them  Laughing Laughing 

I seem to keep accumulating duplicates of allsorts of old UK made figures when I buy 'job lots', be it on eBay or in 'real life' at antique/collector fairs, fleamarkets, etc.

I rather like the old Sable Antelope, but agree the old deer was pretty hopeless, being a plastic version of the equally hopeless old lead deer stag.

Most of this old type plastic deer have long since had their antlers broken off, which, if you're doing a display, makes them acceptable as  females to go with the new type Britains plastic deer stag, which is a splendid animal.

You're right, the old deer may be based in Iberian subspecies and you're right it works very nice as a doe, I received it from you too. Very Happy
The newer stag is more based in British subspecies, so too much bearded for a female. Laughing

I had the old stag in my collection for many years without antlers, before i finally found one with antlers indeed.
But this saber is an older mould, isn't it, and i don't mean the difference btween the old model and the newer model with his head slightly turned.
i know the older old model, as i have a lot of copies from Hong kong from this older old model.
Like these two models i have from Britains...
