The Indian Chief

Indian Chief on horse, Leyla, Germany, 1970's



  1. Such a beautiful statue Geoffrey. Really love this figurine. Never heard of Leyla.

  2. Thank you Woodsy - yes - it is quite nice - I don't know a lot about Leyla either - but there is a mention "made in Germany" on the bottom together with the brand name (in English) - so was this one for export markets ? It looks a lot like Hauser-Elastolin, but in a less detailed sense I would say (Elastolin would have the ears sticking out of the head of the horse for example - here they are just molded together with the mane ...)
