G&B3 - British Hussar of P.A.O. Leicestershire Yeomanry, standing, leaning on sword
Lead Toy Soldiers. Made & hand-painted in England by the team of John Greenwood and Miss K.N. Ball, these 54mm, solid lead figures are difficult to find and much in demand. They were produced from 1936 to 1966, when, due to ill health, the firm closed its doors. The fine detail and exquisite painting are highlights of the G&B figures.
