Georland Soldiers

The photograph below have been posted on the History of Georland blog but I thought I would put them here for anyone who hasn't found their way over there yet.

It has emerged that most of the figures are demi rondes of around 30mm size for foot figures. Many were Franco Prussian War figures bought cheaply in around 1873 and repainted or otherwise converted. There are some flats in the collection as well - these are thought to be a later addition.

Any definite identification of manufacturers and subjects would be very welcome.

Good to see the figures in the photos.
As one who is becoming more and more appreciative of Heyde,Allegeyer,Spenkuch style figures of late I have a question.How available were these German manufacturer's figures in britain in th e19th Century.How did they compare in price then to Britains for example?
