That's fantastic! Sometimes, it is not easy for someone used with major brands to appreciate these Britains figures due to their small size. Though, you've got some of the largest and better ones. I love Britains and the sculpts of these two figures are better than the counterparts from major brands. Both you got are two gens from 1961, the Asian elephant [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and the Asian rhinoceros [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Both already discontinued, of course. Very Happy There's something very special in Britains world that we don't see in major brands, figures are made in scale, so they give a good impression of the proportions between real animals. If you compare your elephant with your rhino, you'll have a good idea how they compare in real life. They are made to fit human figures of 54 mm representing an average sized person. We have a lot of work to do yet on Britains pages on Toy Animal Wiki, but you can [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] an overview of Britains Zoo collection. Very Happy

Unfortunately, Anne there have not been any more Britains zoo/wildlife figures since they last appeared in a catalogue dated 1998.

However, they are widely available on the pre-owned market as loads were made between 1960 and 1998.

Maybe with the recent takeover by Tomy there will new additions.

Great finds BTW.
