Historical Military Figurines
Porcelain military or soldier figures had long been a tradition among all early German porcelain manufactures. Equestrian figures, especially those of noteworthy German heroes, were particularly cherished. This was especially true during the Third Reich, when historical German leaders and soldiers from periods of past German battlefield successes became especially popular. Frederick the Great is an excellent example of this admiration. It is highly regarded and cherished by collectors. When painted, these figures either on horseback or standing alone come to life. The artistry is magnificent. All of the figures in this category are highly sought after by Allach collectors and are very difficult to find. Malachowsky Husar von 1771 is especially difficult to obtain. Particularly since it’s late production in 1942, the numbers were very limited. These Military Figurines were mostly the expertise of Theodor Karner and Richard Forster at the Allach company. Karner was already a highly respected artist in several artistic areas when he joined Allach in 1936. Karner created more models for Allach than any other artist, and together with Carl Diebitsch, was responsible for the Allach long term production program.
