Oh, those are so cool! Very Happy Poor kanga, she looks like she's taken one punch too many.

The no-respect-for-history customizer in me thinks how awesome it would be to see them restored or even repainted properly to show off all that detail...
(Just as well I'm afraid of lead, really, or I could really do some damage. Laughing )

oooo! they are wonderful! i love the bison and the kangaroo is hilarious. He is definitely a front runner in the Most Confused Ever competition!

Hey, would a little Britains collie like to stay in Denmark with some other lead doggies? he would of course be welcome in Calif, but after a very long time of chasing sheep, he might like to take it easy play with his new doggie friends.

Great additions Susanne! You are very lucky. I love the bison! The "waterbuck" looks more like an eland to me. scratch

I think that lead figures are those that give us a feeling of antiquity. Actually it is true once they are very old. Very Happy I only have a camel from Britains. Very Happy
I like them all, specially the Britains eland antelope! Very Happy

The white paint on your lead kangaroo wasn't later vandalism, but was typical Pixyland/Kew factory painting for this model.

Of course it might have been done by a kid, but the kid in question would have been the child of a P/K home painting out-worker. They didn't observe child labour and health and safety laws in the back streets of the poorer parts of London in the 1930s, and the pay was so low that I'm sure loads of kids were made to help out.

These two dogs you have here Susanne are ‘Timpo’. Timpo is short for Toy Importers and they operared from 1945 to 1978. The dogs are from the 1950’s are were part of their ‘My Pets’ range. The St. Bernard was number 5004 and the Great Dane was number 5000. All dogs were issued in a box. BTW Timpo also had a West Highland terrier in their range as number 5012. This number was also allocated to a Scottish Terrier.

Hope all this helps.  Very Happy

I suspect the big brown Spaniel was made in Germany by George Heyde of Dresden, who made a lot of large scale nick-nack figures, intended as ornaments rather than toys, and were often fixed to ashtrays or blocks of marble or other stone.

I'll eventually get round to doing a thread about Heyde and other vintage German made lead figures, which don't seem to be mentioned at all in the vintage German section. Not all vintage figures made in Germany were composition.
