Another thread on here prompted me to share these with you.
My husband's aunt gave them to me 20+ years ago when she had no use for them anymore. She bought them on one of her trips to England. Sadly they had started to deteriorate when i got them and have gotten worse over the years. The last few years i have had them packed away as to try and preserve them best i can. The problem is paint flaking off, cause of this they are virtually worthless in the money sense but priceless on the side of sentimental.
Anyway i think they are terrific
Hi Gibbo an email to the company may give you an answer. I see all the ones you have are featured on page 1 of the 2nd link.
I think they are made of chalk, what we used to call plaster of paris. We used to pour the 'paste' into animals footprints etc, then paint them when dry.
Your answer was your 7000 post in two years....what can i say

I will email them and see what they have to say. I did think about having them repainted once but then to me they wouldnt be original as such If i can just stop any further flaking i'll be happy.
I used to have them hanging on a wall but packed them away hoping to help save them.
Hi Gibbo i like them,really nice to keep something like the.
Congleton is fairly close to Manchester if you didn't know.
Thanks Lee. One reason i like them was they were different to anything else i had before. There not something we see a lot of over here, not where i am anyway. There special to, i liked the aunt in law who gave them to me
