I exchanged eMails just in the recent days with Mr. Burlet.
He comfirmed that the museum really owns about 70 Gottstein figures mould from the Burgundian times, but at present they do not sell figures.
Other way he proved to be a nice person, answered my eMail on the very next day.

Well, frankly said, this shop is a bad joke  >:(
They sell ONE item....

I have just added a gallery and put in an image of the Gottstein dinosaurs. They are pretty old-fashioned now as the way in which dinosaurs are viewed has changed radically over the years, but fun to paint.

The Murten moulds were sold to "Schweizerische Nationalmuseum Zürich, Museumstrasse 2, 8021 Zürich, www.museumsshop.ch".
They would produce some figures for this shop; I don´t know when ???
Ask Jürg Burlet juerg.burlet@snm.admin.ch ; he is the flat administrator of the museum.
The Kollbrunner diorama Murten with 6000 flats is there, too.

Whats about the Murten series.
I read somewhere that the Murten moulds had gone to a Museum.
Have the Leipziger the Murten sets too?

If only I had invested more wisely I could have been the envy of my flat friends....


A shame to break them up but, hopefully some sets will be back in circulation as a result.

Hi marco and for all who are interested.
The Gottstein forms have been restored and are available for cast casting for disposal.
Can you adjust to the fact that the complete range of figures standing on the Kulmbach stock market this year for disposal.
Whether the beautiful figures are sold in complete series or in individual items, I can not answer unfortunately.
So in Kulmbach the world of figures is reflected in the solder. :) :) :) :)
best regards
Wolfgang

Another vendor now out of business, Krog was one of my all time favorites with a number of the classic Gottstein sets and figures such as Henry VIII, Staff of Louis XIV and Elizabeth at Tillbury and the incomparable elephants of the Punic Wars.

 

Moulds were purchased by Leipzig Association who hopefully will make the figures available once more.
