A rare set of antique F AD Richter & Co childs building blocks.
These are Orion no. 4 blocks, late 19th century / early 20th century c1890's / 190, Made by renowned German company Richter.
The building block set is complete and comes with the original paper instructions with colour illustrations.
They come housed in the original wooden box, the box had a slide top pictorial lid and has beautiful dovetail joins.
The special thing about this series is that unlike many construction blocks these were still made of stone, using a special compound of chalk, sand and linseed oil then pressed in a mould to form the shapes.
This set is a complete set in the original box, a very nice find.
Good used condition overall, lots of aged patina, instruction booklet has come apart but pages still full, box has wear and ageing.
