Description

These pot metal figures were manufactured in 1946 by Britain Ltd. they are hollow cast, which was cheaper to manufacture than solid figures. They were manufactured by spinning the molds rather than letting them sit which would make the metal cling to the sides of the mold, thus creating hollow figures. These hollow figures represent the prewar British Blues and Royals (Royal Horse Guards and 1st Dragoon Regiments) as well as a few Scottish infantry from an unknown regiment.
