Nazaire Beeusaert (NB) composition navy officers

The production of the composition soldiers of Nazaire Beeusaert (NB) dates from the end of 30s. Every figure was produced manually. The raw material consisted of a composition mixture made from crushed paper and cardboard waste, water, flour glue and chalk. For each type of soldier there was a separate mold in which the mixture was pushed. Through openings in the mold, the figure was reinforced with galvanized iron wire. When the soldier was taken out of the mold, it was still very fragile. After twenty-four hours of drying, the paintwork could begin. The NB figures are collector items. The Nazaire Beeusaert company stopped its production in 1965. Belgian composition 7cm navy officers produced by Nazaire Beeusaert (NB) Belgium.


  1. I picked up a couple at the weekend, I have a standard-bearer whom i particularly like as his flag is a compo' moulding, rather than the tin sheet of Elastolin or someone!
