Dating back centuries, lead, or rather now tin soldiers, have been used by both children for entertainment and adults for the purpose of military planning. While no longer made out of lead, these soldiers have been prominent in such royal courts as those of Frederick of Prussia and numerous other 18th century contemporaries. Our soldiers, while closer than most to the original 18th century "flat" examples, do have more body and shape to them, with beautiful details. No longer made out of lead, these tin soldiers are made from Britannia Pewter, being non-toxic and safe for handling by children.
Here specifically we have a 40mm scale standing infantryman, suitable for most 18th century nations. This would be a wonderful addition to any collection, for use in recreating officer military displays, or as a toy for a child (we currently have numerous varieties available within our store and they can be ordered in larger quantities to make matching sets).
This item is made to order and will be ready in less than one to two weeks (usually sooner) from the order date.
