A nice early group, although being 'square base' I think these examples are a little later than 1901.
Their 1901 copyright would have been for the first 'oval base' version, but would have continued as a slight change such as base shape didn't affect the actual soldier.

I love how all the early soldiers had moustaches painted on. Soldiers were required to grow a moustache (with allowances for young soldiers and the naturally not hairy who couldn't grow one) because a moustache was considered manly. I think this rule was dropped sometime during WW1.

Hi. The painting of these early figures always impresses me.

I'll do some over the coming days, & I'm sure there are a few other members who have some vintage non-animal figures.

Hi. Some very nice figures.
I have picked out one of my favourite mounted soldier figures from my lot. The horse is amazing. What do you think?

To roger, hope I got the size right. If not sorry. (What it's the best size?) regards Nick

Yes, that's one on my wants list - the Britains 2nd grade Cossack.
As you saw in the Indians thread, I have quite a lot of Britains 2nd grade, mainly because they're usually cheap, and the range is quite large, but small enough that gathering a complete collection is a realistic possibility.

While this is obviously the case for large numbers of photos Hugh, I hope you'll post the odd one or two here as well if it is particularly pertinent to a conversation.
