An equestrian themed German metal/lead group of four figures. Three regal hunting dogs along with the Master of the Fox Hunt. Fine details on the dogs and the Hunt Master from the buttons and the cut of his coat to the expressions on the dogs' faces. Muted shades of cream, brown, red, and rust.
I estimate the set to be C. 1920. The set is marked on two of the dogs with Germany. ( McKinley Tariff Act of 1891 which required items imported into the US be marked with country of origin. Great Britain had required Germany, to mark items also). I base this on research, since I have limited experience with antique and vintage toys. This set along with the metal foxes I have listed, were acquired solely for their intrinsic value to a "fox hunting or equestrian " themed collection. I am always open to more information or clarification.
Measurements; 3" long and 2 ½" high
Condition; The paint shows some wear in a few areas and has normal crazing in accordance with age. The only item to note....possible break on the end of the horn. Still, there is enough horn left in the huntsman's hand, so as not to detract from the group
