Great figures. It's interesting. I think that it's the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] that makes cake things. The location is right, and they are an old company. They may have originally been for decorating the top of cakes. It's possible they tried a line as toy/craft items at some point too. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] they have now, but they are more toy-like.

I've also found some information in a toy soldiers webpage saying that Wilton Chicago figures were made In Hong Kong during 70's and 80's and that they are based in other brands! Suspect study
Thanks for showing and congratulations, these geese are really beautiful and serious figures! flower

Some lovely models there but I think the models are Indian Runner Ducks and not geese.

Those are incredible figures, they are very life like but I hate to tell you this they are not geese, they are runner ducks. It is a domestic duck that was bred for meat and eggs and instead of flying away they have a very straight posture and run away from danger. They were developed from mallard ducks (all domestic ducks except for the muscovy duck are from mallard stock) and are very popular as a pet and farm breed of duck.
