BFFS issue 82 mentions these from Kovar:

In addition, he offers some beautiful 80mm figures from Mozart operas. I have illustrated the set from the Magic Flute, and there is a set of figures from The Escape from the Seraglio and a figure of Don Giovanni. The Magic Flute figures are also illustrated in colour and look re- ally good.

P.S. Interesting subject ...

Peter Ewald Kovar from Vienna hat 2 30 mm figures of "Der Rosenkavalier".And a big orchestra of the times of Mozart.In large scale bigger series of Mozart OperasZauberflöte, Entführung aus dem Serail and Don Giovanni

Mr. Kovar died a couple of years ago - but there is an website.http://www.kovar.wien/
Useful may be the large "Nibelungen"series at Berliner Zinnfiguren to create scenes of Wagners "Ring"
Romeo and Juliet from former editor Siegbert Wagner - now at Dangelmaierhttps://www.intflatfigures.org/BFFS/Vendor%20Catalog/Dangelmaier/Wagner/Typenblaetter%20Wagner.pdf
The mentioned "Turandot" Figures are from Neumeister now at Schmalkalder Zinnfigurenhttps://www.schmalkalder-zinnfiguren.de/30-mm-flachfiguren/altertum-antike/asien/chinesen-der-han-dynastie-200-v-chr-200-n-chr/?page=2
Wagners "Lohengrin" exists a series from Grünewald in 30 mmwww.zinnfiguren-gruenewald.de/EinzeltypenlisteTeil2/Zivil Zubehoer+Kleinserien.pdf
Grünewalds Series are now at many editors. But I do not know where the Lohengrin moulds are.

There are some figures in Giengener Zinnifiguren catalog, by Gerhard Karl Fetzer, too:


Vitrinenfigren from Zauberflote (Papageno, Papagena, Monostatos, Konigin der nacht), Don Giovanni (Leporello, Don Giovanni), Così fan Tutte (Fiordiligi), Le nozze di Figaro (Figaro), Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail (Osmin, Belmonte).

Thanks, Claudio. Do you know where I could find those catalogs? It seems that, in 30 mm, there is not much on the subject of Opera, even though this topic is so vast.

There is also a large 30mm set of Wagner as well, let me find a maker.  Looking Berliners Zinnfiguren site they show The Magic Flute and Puccinnis Turnadot in 30 mm.


There are also a number of flats of Wagner the composer.

There are some larger scale figures around of Wagnerian themes - Tristan and Isolde, Tannhauser and Lohengrin
https://www.inzinn.de/00243.html
Also larger scale figures of the Magic Flute, I think these were Historia Muller, so don't know what their availability is.

Exploring a side subject from the 'Music in Tin' article that has already appeared in the Journal, I'm compiling a list of flat figures related to Opera. The ones I could find for the moment are:


  • Mozart's Zauberflöte, engraved by Werner Otto
  • The Mohr Faust series (though inspired directly by Goethe rather than Gounod's Faust)
  • Recently, on the Berliner Zinnfiguren website, figures of Puccini's Turandot also appeared (engraver and editor unknown).


Do you have any other suggestions to add to this list?
