These beautifully-rendered soldiers are part of my Father-In-Laws collection. I found them in a box that said only Fiji Band. They are actually the Band of the Fiji Military Forces and are quite famous. I could swear these 25 soldiers were made by William Britain, but they dont have the typical proprietor branding on the bottom.
They are in fact completely unmarked. I believe I remember hearing that someone in the USA bought Britain molds, maybe thats how they came to be? If you know, please enlighten me.
In any case, these fellows are just gorgeousvery carefully painted in jaunty red, white and green colors. The painting is some of the nicest I've seen.The drummer even has a leopard apron! They are all in perfect shape except for one who has lost his drumstick. Im sure it could be repaired. This band would be a lovely gift or a treasured addition to your collection.
