Royal Krona ladies

These cast ladies jumped at me in Brussels last week. One of them is signed (RK########MJ) and has the Royal Krona sticker - so I know it is Matts Jonasson from 1975-1977. But what are these ladies? Eskimo? Pocahontas?

Not sure you can call those people Eskimo anymore, they're Inuit aren't they?   :-\ :)

Hi Ivo,
They are eskimo/Inuit ladies.

Great  :hiclp:  that is what I was hoping for - I seem to have quite a collection of inuits, they're following me around.  Though not quite sure if you can combine vikings, trolls, polar bears and inuits in one display case.   ;D

Hi Ivo, why not?
Just make sure you have the Inuit a safe distance from the polar bears  ;D  The trolls and the Vikings will either kill one other or come to some kind of understanding " Right then , you can have one of ours this week, and we'll grab one of you next week, OK?"
( On the other hand, feed the trolls to the polar bears and let the Vikings try to find the clever Inuit in the frozen wastes)

From what I remember from the Scandi publishing parties I used to go to, the Norwegians and the Swedes will get on like a house on fire, but will both be painfully polite to the Danish, who they think are miserable and not really Scandinavian....

The Danish will look down their noses at the Swedes and Norwegians , as they think they are way above them in any case...

Thank you very much!

OJ! That's really hurtful :'( we don'tlook down our noses at anybody, especially not the Norwegians, they're our mates! We're very polite to the Swedes 'cos they are very polite to us. And because we feel a bit sorry for them, they weren't great shakes as Vikings ;)
