Today i got a package from England, - I do not know how to find words to describe how enormously surprised and happy I was when I finally had removed layer after layer of wrapping, - A DONKEY cheers

But no ordinary donkey, a precious, lovely, old and rare and cute donkey, at least 50 years old ! And as a quite undserved gift from Sue and Lesley !!! Shocked Shocked drunken cheers

I would never have dreamed of owning so precious a donkey cheers

Of course she ( I think it is a she) now stands together with my other old and precious figueres on my "showshelf", but she is by far the most precious, - a gift , and completely undeserved !

But let me show you. It is rather dark here today, so the pictures are not the best, but I can`t wait to show you, so : Ta-daaaa !!!!

What a sweetie and what a lovely gift! Very Happy
I love how these older models, despite seemingly having not very much detail, actually look more realistic and lifelike than many current ones. This one has the most exquisite head of any model donkey I've seen!

You are so right, Sumo, there is something very donkey`ish in this figuere Very Happy

Looking at the picture from the shelf, I just realised that there are several, that I would never have got without STS, - one of the little Reisler-men is a gift from Anna Very Happy , the tapir, oryx and striped hyena are from Torben`s collection, and the deer and fox are from a "lot" of mainly Reisler, that Christophe pointed out to me on Ebay cheers

Susanne and Willy, the donkey is Lineol. Here it is in a bad copy of a copy of a page from a Lineol 1958 catalogue. This mould was used from 1940 to the end of Lineol production, around 1960.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Donkeys from (left to right): Tipple-Topple mould; Lineol 1930's mould; Lineol 1940-onwards mould (Susanne's donkey!); Hausser /Elastolin mould.

This particular donkey came to us with broken and twisted legs. Lesley fixed him up and now he has a good home with Susanne!

Thanks for the info Les and Sue!
I do have some pages of the Lineol and Hausser catalogues, but only with wildlife and so on.
And a copy of the 1935/1936 Lineol catalogue, but this donkey wasn't in there, as it was made later probably.

The first LINEOL donkey (the second on the left) was made from 1932 to 1940. Then LINEOL made the other one (third) from 1940 to 1960. Those models are the two last donkey models. Indeed, two different models were made before : One before 1920 and the other from 1920 too 1932. For the older, I guess you could give your right arm to pay one Laughing
Lineol also made a very nice and very rare mule 10 1940.

I am afraid i can't help you on pictures of that mule Phil, but maybe Christophe can, as he has older scans of those catalogues, from which i only have the wildlife pages(1925 and 1937).
And i have a bad copy of the 1935-1936 catalogue.

By the way, good information Christophe! cheers
