PostSubject: Composition models, additions in Susannes collection :-)   Thu Jun 15, 2017 9:00 pm

Last week I got a wonderful parcel from a famous and very knowledgeable German collector/seller of composition models  cheers
Most of them he had been so kind to keep for me in order to save shipping, but when I bought two running hares from him, I just had to see them all Wink

The hares are Danish copies of the Lineol hare, and they are both made in the early 1950s  rabbit

This one is from Neo-Form, and means a lot to me, because I had a similar one as a child  drunken

The Lineol giraffe here , from the 1950's has been on my wishlist for a long time  alien

Marolin models are very charming, and I am fascinated by the history of the factory, - perhaps the only old brand that still makes composition models  Very Happy
This lion is from the 1930s !!!

Last, not least : An okapi made by Neo-Form in the mid 1950s !
It is a very interesting model, except for the dinos ( That are sold for many hundreds of euros) this critter is one of the few models that was sculptured exclusively for Neo-Form, and not a copy !!! Very Happy
It was made after an okapi, which came to the Zoo of Copenhagen. My Mom told me about this strange animal Very Happy
The model is very hard to find, and in mint shape the price is chocking !!!!  Shocked
So I am delighted with my Oka-boy, even if somebody glued sticks to his feet to make him stand  Laughing

Susanne, that's a historic lot. It is like watching a museum of toy animal figures.
These Neo-Form, the hare and the okapi are surely the stars of this group. The hare for obvious reasons, you recovered a figure of your childhood that bring you lots of memories. The okapi also marks a moment of your life that you still remember once it represents an exact okapi that lived in Denmark. I find it all so exciting and interesting. It is also fantastic that the okapi is not inspired in any other earlier figure, it gives a lot more value to the figure. These Even the sticks are a sui generis point, although this is a rustic solution, it may help that okapi to survive until our days and have the chance of giving you such joy of owning it. I love it! Very Happy

I've found that in 1961, an okapi calf was born in Copenhagen Zoo, it was called Tove... yes! Tove! Wink Probably your replica was made after her Mother. I haven't confirmed it, maybe writing in Danish you can find the exact animal that served as model for your figure. Isn't it exciting? Do you know if Neo-Form also made a calf? Very Happy

WOW ! Interesting !!!
I know for sure that the first okapi in the Zoo was a male Like a Star @ heaven , so Tove and her mom must have been some time later Very Happy
And, no, I am 99,99999% sure that there was not made a calf.

Like a Star @ heaven There was a song made about "Okapien, der var en dreng" = the okapi which was a boy.

In Danish "the girl" is "Pigen ", where the g is not pronounced Very Happy
It is a bit hard to translate .... is a play with words . Perhaps you get it ?  Wink

Laughing Maybe it could be translated to: "The okagirl that was a boy!" Laughing
Yes, your figure could never be Tove's mother once it is a male and he is showing proudly his horns. I should have considered it. I feel that the Danish okapi song was dedicated to my personal confusion. Wink

Yes ! The okagirl which was a boy  cheers

I found a page with info about the Okapis from Copenhagen zoo. Very Happy
"The Okaboy" came from Congo in 1948 ( even before I was borne !!!), and his wife a couple of years later. They had 4 calves over the years.
Okaboy died in 1963 and his wife in 1968.
For many years there were no calves, but in 2008 the male Stanley came from Stuttgart Zoo, and in 2011 the female Luani.
Those two got the a calf in 2016. The first Danish borne okapi in 50 years !!!  cheers

However, it can't be Tove, because the calf is - an okaboy  Laughing

Even if it is in Danish, the pictures in the article are beautyful [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , in case you are interested Very Happy

First of all congratulations to these wonderful animals.

What a coincidence and interesting story and in the end the luck that the okapi has returned to Denmark and found his home by Susanne.

A really very interesting story.

On the Internet I found this postcard from an antique shop. Since many years zoos display their own animals on postcards. The photo is taken around 1960 in the Zoo of Copenhagen.
The publisher is the Danish publisher K.-Wittmöller.
