The German king "Friedrich II von Preußen"- had always "Windspiele" ( English: Italian Greyhound).

More information about this king, his time and his dogs can be found in these articles below. He was an very unusual person and a very interesting German king.

Have you found anyone that collects historical figures and thought these dogs didn't worth?
They're incredibly delicate and well done! I love them a lot! I think you should feel a very proud owner of these celebrities! of Thanks also for your very interesting presentation. It was good to read a little more about Prussia history and I loved the detail of the burial of the king. farao

Thanks Susanne and Roger.
Roger, I found the dogs some years ago on Ebay. They were sold as "Plastiic animals no name". it´s always very interesting to discover great stories behind small things. Susanne, the material is soft plastic.

Noname, wonderful! Laughing These dogs are far from being anonymous but surely it was good for you that the seller didn't know. Very Happy
