Hi! Today I found some animal figures in antique shop and I bought 2 of them. I like very much shape of the lioness and they both look rather cute for me. They are quite damaged but maybe I will try to repair them both a little. Also I think I probably will come back to this shop for Brazilian tapir which looks nice as well. I wonder if anybody here knows their brand? Very Happy study

In the shop were also other figures: lion male and very funny looking monkey of unknown specie. If anyone i interested in getting them then I can help. All the animals had some damages unfortunately Rolling Eyes but prices were about new schleich figures so maybe reasonable :)

I don't know the brand, Anna, but they are really nice. I especially like the bear!

Please go get the tapir and post photos! :)

Congrats!

Ana, Pfeiffer's Tipple-Topple animals are my all-time favourites! How could I not recognise them?!

The picture above shows the biggest boxed set of Tipple-Topple zoo animals produced in 1924. Some of the moulds were replaced, but some were still in use in 1960, including your Lioness.

I would go back for the rest of them ... and who knows, maybe the strange-looking monkey is something special!

Lesley It's wonderful that I had a chance to find something from Your favorite brand, I also think these animals are lovely sculpted and every charming, lioness is very inspiring for me. I hope my previous words didn't sound like an ignorance Embarassed I'm very happy with my old newcomers cheers This box set which You showed is wonderful, what a great species all in one ox, it's a dream Very Happy
Do You think i shall repair these animals or it would be better if they stay untouched?

The monkey was something similar to the one above the giraffe from the box :) Is it kind of macaque?
I will buy rest of animals, they are indeed very charming and would be nice to say welcome to them Very Happy

Roger, the monkey was not like the baboon nor the guenon. It was on four legs like the one above the giraffe. I will take this monkey home and in case someone wants to adopt it then I can send it to new home :)

These are three Tipple-Topple composition Monkeys. The Macaque on the left was based on an engraving of a Barbary Ape which featured in a number of natural history books around 1910.

Hope this helps,

Lesley

Yes, the others would be good to have unless they are really badly damaged. I really like the Tipple Topple animals. I have just a couple but they are my best composition ones
