Georg Manz composition soldiers ⚔️⚔️⚔️💥💥💥

Georg Manz (July 8, 1864 – November 11, 1948) run a grocery store in Ellwangen in Baden-Württemberg from around 1900 to the beginning of 1930s. He sold jewelery and leather goods, knives, scissors, basketry and brush goods, and also toys. The Manz 7.5 cm composition figures are believed to have been made around the time between 1915 and 1918 and have no wire insert for stabilization. These composition figures are modelled entirely in the style of the pewter figures customary at that time. But it is not yet possible to prove with certainty whether they were produced by Manz itself. According to statements by the Manz family, he probably didn't produce them himself. According to Ellwangen historians, no figures are known to have been produced in Ellwangen. It is also questionable whether a "small grocer" would have had the financial means to finance such a rather extensive figure production. After all, it has been proven that there are over 100 different soldier figures. Some researchers believe that Hausser might be the real producer of Manz soldiers.
