I am quite exited about these, that I found on Ebay, - the fowl look exactly like the old Schleich, but it only says "Made in Portugal" under them .
So I think the seller is right, they are made by Maia +Borges. They don`t put their name on the sealife either.
Also the figueres have the same silky feel as other M+B-figueres Shocked Very Happy

The dark rooster from "Made in Portugal" is plain brown, - the one from Schleich to the right for comparison.

According to the seller these two horses are from "Borges". They look like Bully-horses, but not exactly.

These two were also in the bid. From Siku, the seller wrote, - can anyone confirm ?

Thank you, Harriet sunny
I love them, - they look so much like Schleich, I have to look under them so see the difference.


BTW, - it is a terrific idea that you have your name as "signature".
I wish all with funny IDs would do the same. My old brain finds it harder and harder to remember the names as we grow more "villagers" clown farao

Very nice finds indeed!
The fact that they look like Schleich is not an accident, Maja & Borges made models for Schleich for many years, and have the permission to use a lot of their original moulds... Rolling Eyes

I thought it was only the sealife Shocked
And had no idea that dey also made Bully-stuff.
But then Schleich and Bully are intertwined, as you told us Very Happy

Hey, I have that duck on the right! Mine just says China though (and has a nasty seam on its butt), so I guess it's a knockoff. Cool models, I especially like the draft horses.
