I've always dreamed of owning this model drunken , but the other day while browsing German eBay I spotted one and I thought I'm going to try and get it - I've never bought from eBay.de before so I asked for the help of Andreas for translation and Sue and Lesley for advice on the model. Thanks to you three I now actually own a Lineol Caribou cheers cheers it's in beautiful condition, the antlers are still intact.

It is so nice to see that you are a proud owner of a terrific figure and with the help of forum friends! rendeer cheers
It is unbelievable how glamourous gets a figure when made with realism. Look at the small head,elegant legs, the very well balanced as it bears its antlers! What a Face It was not made to be a toy but a realistic animal! :) cheers
Congrats Harriet, STS friends and Lineol! Very Happy Very Happy

Big congrats for this model Harriet!
Finally you've got one! cheers
He is old, about the 1940-1950's i think... Rolling Eyes
Normally , the legs are brittle, and they have cracks, you can't help that, as the old material starts to work through time.
Having complete antlers is an important thing with models like this.
I don't think he is ment to be a caribu, as the sculptor probably never saw one before, and the German company made mostly European animals, so it has to be a reindeer i guess... Rolling Eyes Laughing

Thanks for the dates Willy, that's nice to know. The model has a few cracks but no flaking paintwork, as Susanne said someone must have taken a lot of care of this model, the legs are so delicate and of course the antlers, it's amazing it's lasted these years!

The problem with STS is I'm running out of superlatives!
Truly an amazing piece, and it's even sweeter since friendship helped you achieve your dream!
