Footnotes

  • PRODUCTION NOTE

    This extremely rare version of the Russian Infantry has only once before been on offer at auction, in the Richards collection, lot 769. Although in that sale it was offered with an original box, from the nature of the Richards collection this was not necessarily the actual one in which the set was originally sold.

    There are therefore two possibilities to account for the rarity of the version, firstly that it might have been a first version small size equivaltent to the standard size marching version, or they were issued by the Paris Office, who also produced their own ideas of the Japanese.
