Hi
I have resized some pics from the Jostra catalog figurines section, I really need to get the whole thing scanned.

There's a cockerel there that has been thought to be Pirelli.  :o
And I had two of the frog musician figurines, but gave them to my BIL.

Thank-you so much for sharing this.  :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Sue I was hoping you'd see this.
I thought of your cat when I saw the catalogue pages :)  but I don't think it's the same is it?

The really tiny opalescent Siamese one? It's not really like those is it?
Leni has that now. She's an oriental cat person, I'm just a moggie-sort.  :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Piccies.
It might be, after all m. The cat on the page is walking off the edge... ;D

It's not dissimilar to the style of the cat imho.
I'm not sure how 'exactly the same' these items are v the catalogues.

There will be variations with the things being so small and individually made, but I reckon it takes incredible individual skill to make them so realistic and full of movement.
You can almost see the muscles under the skin. You certainly know they're there. :)

Their cat has whiskers Sue - do you think that might rule it out for yours/Leni's?  It's probably a 'marker' isn't it?
