The figurine of German Navy soldier


In December 2018, Mrs. Alenka Pavlovec donated to our museum a figurine of the soldier of the German Navy (kriegsmarine) on a pedestal in a parade step with a drum, together with the seventeen co-soldiers. Under the figure, with which her father played, we find the inscription Elastolin. Elastolin is a trademark used by the German company O&M Hausser (O&M Haußer) for the toy soldiers and other types of figures it manufactured until 1943, from composite material and later on from plastic.
