Haselbach’s tin figures

J.C. Haselbach of Berlin (1848–1900) was a plrolific maker of 40-50 mm tin figures. He entrusted the engraver Wildt from 1848–55 with the care of a large number of his moulds, reputedly between 5,000 and 6,000. Of particular appeal was the parade of Frederick the Great, displaying the most popular units of that army. He also made European soldiers, Thirty Years’ War and the Crusades, battles in India and Mexico, the Battle of Woerth-sur-Sauer (Franco-Prussian War) and the Crimean War.

 This tin knight (H:12 cm) with movable arms and visor was probably produced by Haselbach around 1860/80.
