 Posters                Goebel Figurines

 

My collection of Goebel figurines began with Benjamin the donkey and the two cows. I found these figurines on eBay from a seller who's father worked for Louis De Rochemont, the executive producer of Animal Farm. Once I'd identified the maker's mark as Goebel, I discovered another world of collecting. This German company has produced a vast quantity of varied ceramic figurines since before 1900. Go to www.worldcollectorsnet.com/magazine/issue9/iss9p3.html for a better insight from Matt the Goebel King.

Based on the magazine picture of Joy Batchelor and all the figurines (below), I believe the lamb and gosling is all I require to complete my collection. Until found, my frantic search shall continue.......
