New Toy Soldiers - Made in Buenos Aires, Argentina
Which is your favourite?
New Elephant's Choice / Jul 7th, 2017 10:27 am     A+ | a-
Hello Guys,

It's time for me to begin thinking in the new elephant. I have four choices and I'd like to now what you think.

First, my favorite of this batch.

Dewas Senior

This elephant has a few features that make it wonderful to be made:

* The maharaja of Dewas Senior is a young boy. He sits by a British Officer at his left. That s SO lovely I made a boy before, but he was sitting by his father who was the actual maharaja (Kapurthala)

* The elephant's face is nicely painted, with many colors

*The necklace of the elephant is beautiful

* There are two men, one on each side of the elephant, standing on a step. They are dressed in white, with very distinctive hats. The one on the right side of the elephant carries the bright color umbrella.

* The colors of the elephant's clothes look very contrastant

This elephant went alone, without a pair, like the elephant of Narsingharh

* It has a lot of colors all over: elephant's clothes, face paintings

* The Maharaja is elegantly dressed, as well as the 2 companions on the back seat, carrying ornaments.

* The escort guards are beautiful

* The elephant's head clothes and ornaments are splendid, and so is the driver (mahout)

* The most appealing for me from this elephant s definitely the painting of the elephant's face. It's gorgeous.

* The howda has a fine original shape on the front panel

* The escort guards are so pretty


Name:  Bah1.jpg

* The main attraction of this elephant is definitely the maharaja. Look at the richness of his clothes and jewels. He looks so proud in his howda.

* The elephant has 3 necklaces

* The elephant carries a ladder on the left side and it's off white. It wll look very good against the elephant's clothes colors.

Well, let me know what you think

Rui - For now, Charkkhari is winning. But Dewas Senior will be made too, sooner or later. Lord Curzon's elephant is in my plans too.

For me the Dewas Senior would be a good choice, but any other will be welcomed.
By the way, Lord Curzón elephant should not be forgotten. I still have the one from Britains on display...
