Tin toy soldiers in Franco-Prussian War

The Franco-Prussian War was a conflict between the Second French Empire and the German states of the North German Confederation led by the Kingdom of Prussia. Lasting from 19 July 1870 to 28 January 1871, the conflict was caused by Prussian ambitions to extend German unification and French fears of the shift in the European balance of power that would result if the Prussians succeeded.These tin toy soldiers are presented at the National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts & History.
