Red Deer Stag, walking

This model was number 1364 in the Britains Zoo line. Originally issued in matt plastic in 1960. This version lasted until it was replaced by one in PVC in 1968. The model was finally withdrawn in 1971.

Marked on the belly area: BRITAINS LTD ENGLAND

Essentially, this was a re-work from the original lead hollow-cast model which was introduced in 1933.

You need a bit of luck to find one nowadays with both it's antlers intact. These are damaged or missing from playworn examples. I was lucky to find this fine model complete. It isn't mint and this was the reason why I took this one out with me on my photo safari to Bradgate Park. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Just love the way Britains/Herald obtained a neat texture to their animals. I managed to get this detail these images.

With the platypus, it is one of the rare BRITAINS I never had in hands.

You are right, the texture is wonderfully done Sad(o)):

Christophe, whilst I agree this deer model is hard to find in mint condition I have seen many examples like the one in my photos plus those without antlers and with only one of their antlers remaining. But this is here in England and elsewhere I accept that it is a rarity.

In addition to this one I have two others. One matt plastic in mint condition and one in PVC plastic. Hopefully, I will take photos soon and post them here.

Chris, thanks for showing the Britains deer 1st version with such beautiful pictures. Very Happy
This mold is also missing here in my humble Britains collection, I only own the most recent and its rival from Hausser that I received from Kiki, this last maybe my favorite red deer until today. Very Happy
Thanks also for all the additional information and I'm looking forward to see the material variations! Very Happy

AFAIK Britains made no fallow deer (at least the plastic one). But there are many similar copies from HK or China with different paintings.

You are welcome Roger. Very Happy

I remember seeing some Hausser plastic red deer in 1:32nd scale once at a toy fair. Don't know why I didn't buy them! They looked superb.

I haven't forgotten about posting pictures of the other two I have. Hopefully, I will find time very soon.

Hi cattlecollector

Britains never made a fallow deer in plastic or hollow-cast. The ones with spots are copies from Hong Kong. These are usually smaller than the Britains versions.

Here you can see that this model is relatively rare, when not even Christophe and me do have this moddel, at least not with antlers in my case...
But so many copies of it! Laughing

And now the PVC plastic version that was issued in 1968 and was withdrawn in 1971.

This is how my old toy one ended up Harriet and it sounds like most lost at least one of their antlers.

Thanks for sharing Chris, fine to see two of those figurines in a good condition, where most of us have only one without antlers... Crying or Very sad

You are welcome Willy. But don't forget the first one which I took outside is different from the other two I recently posted. So I have three all with both antlers! cheers

My original played with model lost one of his antler's after about a month! Sad

Britains was very criative with painting, maybe those are the markings of an unknown British species? Laughing
I love these figures, I wished I had them! Very Happy

I paid € 7,50 including shipment in the Netherlands, which is very cheap i think, regardless which version...
I am not sure which version i have, but the picture is in the section where we can show our new incomers.

On the PVC version the grey paint on the legs may represent mud! Stags do some strange things during the rut! Very Happy

Roger, I am sure you will find one soon. Good luck.

Willy, why don't you post the image here? It would be nice to have your version included.

BTW I think your recent addition is a later variation of the earlier plastic one.
