Very early in 2020 - before the year turned on us - I had the happy discovery on Ebay of a seller very near me selling a number of sets of flats including Gottstein's Golden Tent or Field of the Cloth of Gold at a very reasonable price.  (June 4 - 24 1520) 

The set is large and iconic with many fine painting examples around - these are beautifully engraved figures!  Designed by L. Rousselot and Engraved by J. Frauendorf it is hard to go wrong.

As part of rinding in the new year I have started to try my hand as well:

Given almost 50 figures my enjoyment will last some time....

This set is also currently available from the Leipzig Collectors Society and Berliner Zinnfiguren, my set pre-dates these and I suspect was purchased from Paul Krog who once offered much of Gottstein's line - http://www.intflatfigures.org/index.php?topic=1982.0
