A rare pair of hand made & painted wooden military figures by the famous Lt. E.V.Howell c.1930. This particular pair of figures depict soldiers from The Buff Regiment, firstly a Pikeman c.1685 and then a Grenadier c.1725. [Lt. E.V. Howell (B. 1871) designed, created and hand-painted models of the British Army in enough detail that they were regularly used by museums for dispaly purposes. It seems that he started this as a hobby on his discharge from the army, circa 1920 but then this became his main source of income]. The figures stand approx 11” to 12” tall, a scale considered sufficient to show all pf the smaller details. Each model is hand annotated to the base with the regiment, rank and date of the uniform shown. These figures proved fabulous museum quality resources and each model is hand annotated to the base with the regiment, rank and date of the uniform shown. Lieutenant Howell provided figures in varying sizes to many museums for display and also the Royal Scots Regiment, Royal Scots Fusiliers, The Rifle Brigade, The Worcester Regiment and The Border Regiment. Both are still in very nice condition for their age with excellent definition and bright colouration with just some slight rubbing to the Pikeman base (not detracting). Lt.Howells painted military figures rarely appear for sale and as such are much sought after by military collectors, so grab this rare chance to add a pair to your own collection.
