Those are very special pieces, they have a real vintage charm and they're quite unknown. It is hard to find information about Berico and we needed Lennart to know that they exist. When we try to find the brand in some huge collections, we just can't find. So that's what I call rare. Very Happy
Those Britains and Reisler are also very beautiful! Very Happy

Hi!

Since I first wrote about Berico here some Years ago I have found out that Berico might have been a distributor. It was based i Malmö, in south of Sweden - now connected with Copenhagen by Underground.

They sold for example also danish made cars. This opens for a possibility that their animals were made elsewhere.

Their farm-range is 1:32, the wild ones are more lika Schelich in size. I have never seen them abroad though.

They turn up sometimes in swedish lots but the major brands here were Britains and Reisler.

I think that Bericos animals didn't reached the 1970:s.

I myself had some as a kid but I have never bought any so I must have got them as gift.

Thankyou, Taylor Very Happy

Thankyou, Lennart, for the additional info Very Happy

Christophe says they look like Hausser's composition models, - but these are surely plastic ! Very Happy

Lennart, I believe you've red [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. study
Reading it carefully, it is hard to believe that Berico produced their own animals via Arsani once as I could understand, they produced and distributed Reisler. It seems that contractually, Berico and all related brands envolved, could not produce toys that could compete directly. Having Reisler, it is not plausible to think that they produced also animal figures, unless they did not distributed Reisler animals and only other collections. We can also read about Berico distributing Timpo and it hasn't succeded because Timpo Toys were direct competitors of Reisler. You have definitively discovered misterious figures and that's exciting. Very Happy
