Hi Gerhard!
It is a good news about Kober!
I was looking for this shop on the usual place on the Graben and I did not found it!
I thought that they went out of busines - and I was very sorrow about it!
Next time (this autumn) I shall visit them in their new location on the Schülerstrasse!

So Zinnfiguren Böhm is not in Business anymore? Very Bad News.
The Toy Soldier Shop should be Spielwaren Kober www.kober.co.at
They have the Wollner Figures.

Fellow collectors,


I went to the Vienna address given here below, and I regret to say there is no flats shop there. In fact, it appears there never was?  :(


(I did find a toy soldier shop in Vienna and London, but I doubt that is of interest to many on the Forum here.)

Gerhard,


I have  gone to the website. It looks like a very talented group of painters. I will see if I can make contact.


Thanks,


Scott

Scott I have forgotten: there is a interesting website www.scatting-nobility.at
It is a group of Collectors mainly in Vienna. If you have more questions, I think you will get help. (I am not from Vienna, but I met Mrs. Horejsi at a little modelling show in Styria this year.She also take painting orders, and she knows Mr. Urbanke, who cast the moulds of the late Mr. Kovar.Have a nice trip to Vienna.

Thank you, Gerhard.


So many wonderful suggestions! I am looking forward to my visit to Vienna.

Dear Scott
Zinnfiguren Böhm should be still in business.It is in the Schulerstrasse 7  near the Stephansdom. It is a shop for Zinnfiguren, but they have no website.Try to google them, there are some pictures on the web.And yes, visit the Zinnfigurenmusem Katzelsdorf. They also have the famous Vesely Figures (K.u.K. Armee in Parade, Fronleichnamszug) and the Figures from
an Doyen of Austrias Collectors Mr. Pohl (from old Germanics to Radetzky - many figures for Parade vor Feldmarschall Radetzky)Catalogs are to download on website.
Greetings

Thank you, Peter. We are staying in Vienna for four days which from what I have been reading will probably not be enough. However a short drive from the city to see something of the countryside (and the possibility of buying flats!) sounds inviting. 


Thanks again.  :)

Dear Scott,
I don't know how long you intend to stay in Vienna but if you have time maybe you could visit Katzelsdorf, which, according to Google maps is about 40 - 50 miles drive south of Vienna.  I've never been there but that's where Scheibert 30mm flat figures are produced.  I've bought Napoleonics, 30 Years War and Scottish Highlanders from them at Kulmbach.  Some of the original moulds were engraved by Frank, Maier and Kovar.  Look at their website:www.zinnfigurenwelt-katzelsdorf.at


Best wishes,
Peter
