I met a gentleman on the car boot sale that had as what appeared to be three trade boxes of Britains farm animals and one of Crescent Swoppets - so potentially exciting! When I opened the boxes all of them had Britains animals which while nice is not one of my areas of interests. But then when I looked closer they all had some kind of fur applied! I had discovered perhaps the only remaining box of Fiddlers Furlets in the world!
So I asked the owner what happened to these? He explained that he had been to an auction where they sold the assets of a defunct company and that they had machinery to flock objects and then these boxes that demonstrated finished products. He knew nothing more besides that the company was based in the New Forest.
- Does anybody know more about Fiddlers Furlets?
- Have they ever sold anything or do I have all the stock ever made?
- Did they also refine Crescents or other figures?
The fur on some of these are (stil) great and quite realistic! By the way the three Britains boxes are for Donkeys (two boxes) and for the feeding calf.
