Thank you Gentlemen, for your suggestions. I'll contact Mr. Arndt. That's interesting how the moulds can travel time and space :). It's going to look like an elephant hunt (well, tin elephant) :D

This may help with the elephant in question:

There is a category for elephants which shows the figure.  Not sure who owns the molds, eBay is where I found most of mine.  There was a gentleman from eBay France that was selling a number of them.

Good luck, Gottstein elephants are very popular with reason, they are great fun to paint and very colorful.

The other set I believe is Bretegnier of which Epoees is either producing some of the figures or has bought the molds.  Not sure of the provenance however.

Dears, as I'm reading the book about Otto Gottstein, I'm wondering where one can find the Carthaginian Elephant from that famous meeting in Leipzig, in 1930. Accordingly to the classification, it should be listed somewhere as CFK 1 Karthagischer Kriegselefant (Tagungsfigur Leipzig, 19,9.1930).
I've been looking on Berliner Zinnfiguren, where one can find several Carthaginian elephants, however, I'm pretty sure it is not there. Any ideas, or suggestions?


And, related to the same event in Leipzig, what about the Marseillaise set? It seems to be that that one, today, should be the one from Edition Epopées: https://epopees-histoire.fr/1090058-la-marseillaise.html


Does anyone can confirm that?


Thank you so much,


Enrico
