Yesterday I found in antique store some animal figures and thanks to help of Lesley I now know their brand: Tipple-Topple. (here is topic about it [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ) First I took only lioness and bear but today I came back for all others Very Happy I'm very happy with my newcomers, they are so charming and have something magical in them, something what turn my imagination about the older times. cheers

They are all pretty damaged and I think about small restoration work. I don't want this to be invasion rework but real restoration so I would need to see pictures of the same models in better condition. I wonder if anyone from forum possibly have pictures of such? Then my animals would have new paws in right shape-I could sculpt following the pictures of originals. I don't want to loose their charm, just would love to see them healthy but still old, vintage animals I love you

Here are some more pictures of them Very Happy

And Barbary ape, funny one monkey

When I first time saw this tapir I thought it is Brazilian specie but now I see that he must be Malayan. I just didn't noticed his lighter markings on body because of dark antique shop interior...

Please, if You friends could advice me if I shall try renovation on my new friends or not? Very Happy

They are Magic ! Beautyful ! Charming ! Quite exceptional , WOW! cheers

I LOVE them all, - also the funny monkey monkey I love you

About restoring them, - there are two things that talk a lot in favour of restoring them :

- They are missing paws etc and could probably easily get even more damaged if they don`t get help now.
- It is "our Anna" who is going to help them Very Happy cheers

So in this case, for once even I vote FOR a restauration !
We have seen what Lesley can do to give an old model a new life without spoiling the old charm.
Of course Lesley is THE expert, but you ren`t so bad either Wink Laughing Laughing flower

Ana, they are wonderful but I must agree with Susanne. Some of them are in a condition that doesn't turn them in fantastic old collectibles! I think they need a good restoring and we trust completly in your talent what turns the decision easier. I hope someone find pictures of these figures in perfect condition. :)
I love the monkey! I love you monkey

Wow, Anna, those are great figures! Wonderful wonderful finds!

I am conservative in general about restoration (that is, mostly I prefer leaving things as they are). However, I agree with what others -- Susanne and Roger, for example -- have suggested: You should do it. Here's how I'm thinking about it. If I had found those figures and it were me trying to figure out what to do, I would see if either you or Harriet could restore them and if one of you could, I'd go that direction. If not, I'd keep them as they are. So, you should definitely restore them. And I'm really looking forward to seeing the results!

You did it Very Happy cheers cheers cheers

Very happy to see those beautiful oldies in your hands Ana, they are in very good hands indeed. Very Happy

I wish you will restore them and I'm sure the magic inside those old toys will not disappear because it is already in your heart and eyes !

I will make pics of this one Wink

no question: restore them please. And you could make a Brazilian Tapir of it, or a Baird's Tapir!
but please don't change the facial expression of the lion male Very Happy

Thank you Roger, Christophe, Philipp, Alvaro and Scott cheers cheers cheers

I also think it would be good to restore them and now I'm sure I will try. :)

Philipp, of course I will not change anything in face of lion, I love this face I love you I think shape of tapir is right for Brazilian but if original was Malayan then I prefer to stay with that and do the paintjob as similar to original as possible :) This may be quite new experience for me to not follow pictures of real animals but old models bounce

Christophe, thank You very much for the photo Very Happy Very Happy cheers

Roger, I'm happy to hear You like the monkey monkey Wink

I worked on bear and monkey last days (well, finally) :) Lions and tapir seems to need more time than these two. Here are photos after surgery :)

Like Christophe said, there is no better place to restore these classic figurines, then at your hands! cheers
I would have restored them as most as possible to the original state, but that is just my opinion, they are far better off then before, that is important to! Sad(o)):
