Originaux et copies

Eric Talmant recently shared a story with us relating to some old moulds, over 70 years old. You can read his report here: http://www.flattinfigures.com/a-little-molds-story-by-eric-talmant He also informed us that the French Society, (afcfef.fr) has the moulds and are pouring new figures from them.

I could not resist. I ordered a set through Eric and received them in the mail yesterday. I am no expert, but I know what I like. The figures are very beautifully engraved and the new figures freshly poured look wonderful. There is no doubt in my mind that a talented painter could make these figures look magnificent.

They are now available through AFCFEF. If interested, you can contact Eric at: talmanteric@gmail.com.
