BRITIANS LTD#1257 Queens Bodyguard/Yeomen/Beefeater Full Dress Lead Toy Soldiers Description
PLEASE SEE OUR OTHER LISTINGS FOR MORE BRITANS SOLDIER SETS!
Here we have a vintage 10+1/2 piece set of delightful die-cast toy soldiers, styled in traditional British “Beefeater” garb: the “Queen’s Bodyguard” or “Yeoman of the Guard” set #1257 by Britian’s Ltd., c.1952-1962.
All figurines have their posable left arms and weapons intact; one of the 10 lance-weilding figurines is missing his feet and pedestal – but his arm, lance and the rest are intact so could be used for parts. Minor losses to the original paint; no evidence of repairs or retouching.
Dimensions (9.5) Soldiers: 2&1/8″h (1) Captian: 2&3/8″h approx 9oz, total
