Won Bronze Prize in the class historical figures smaller than 54mm at Nordic Challenge 2017, held at Otahalli in Espoo today. Mine were the only flats, there were some historical figures other than from WWI. I was told that the judges had been astonished by how I captured the flesh tone.

Bought for my forthcoming birthday the set Strassenleben zur Zeit Napoleons from Berliner Zinnfiguren's flea market, the figures arrived yesterday. It consists of the complete A fair at Leipzig 1800 and the greater part of the Tradesman at the market, only missing the shoe-seller and the man in cloak.
Instead two crudely designed craftsmen from Weapon Smith 1450 are included. Actually it's three figures, but of the bellows reminded only the base. I have found out that the drawing by Ludwig Madlener, engraving by Joachim Emmerling from DDR
It seems that next time I have to order some late medieval figures, perhaps the Tournament Camp?

I am going to paint the broomseller as the västgötaknalle (pedlar from the region of Borås in Sweden) in this painting by Hilleström:

Hello,

owner of the "Kaffeesischnüffler" in 30 mm is B&S Zinnfiguren/Leipzig. Today I saw our friends in Leipzig have a new
hompage with the old adress.

Best regards

I believe they are originally Reibolds figures. After his death,  the molds were sold to many different producers. Karl Heinrich has made the drawings that are the same for both 20 and 30mm figures.
 Both Reibold and Gottschalk lived in Berlin.

Gottfried Gottschalk had a series of "Die Kaffeeschnüffler" in 20mm (see picture), and Reibold a serie in 30mm. I would love to paint them in 20mm. I do not know who owns the molds now. I have always been fond of Pehr Hilleströms paintings.

a good choice because F.K. Mohr was one of the best designers, engravers and painters with his own style for flats.
Best regards

Michael


Yes, I did know that Mohr was highly esteemed. At least when it comes to the broomseller set I seek my inspiration in the paintings by the 18th century Swedish artist Pehr Hilleström. There was an exellent exhibtion of his works here in Helsinki last autumn. 
BTW I had thougth of ordering the coffe-sniffers, as coffe was at a couple of times fobidden here (Finland belonged upto 1809 to Sweden). But I withdraw as I personally imagine our coffe-sniffers to a somewhat latter period than the Prussian figures, because of this print from 1790s:

There are also nice examples of both by Eric Talmant and Ken Pipe among others in the gallery as well.


I am currently working on Morning Toilette myself which is a quite a beautiful casting.  (I have a weakness for Mohr's wonderful work.)  The detail on the Chinese screen is really quite stunning and a 'fun paint'.


Good choices and enjoy the figures.

Hello Casper,

a good choice because F.K. Mohr was one of the best designers, engravers and painters with his own style for flats.

There are two good sources for painting:

- the Douchkine book of Alexander Baden
- the Mohr book of Edition Krannich

And the figures are suitable for small dioramas in a frame.

Best regards

Michael

I got my second and third sets today. Both engraved by Franz Karl Mohr, Morning toilet 1780 and the broomseller. Somewhat bigger figures than in my first set and the casting is of better quality.
