18th Century

This page shows various toy soldiers depicting troops of the 18th Century


A classic toy soldier, a tin flat of Frederick the Great, made in Germany probably around the 1870's, it is in 60mm scale. Flats, as the name suggests, are two dimensional wafer thin figures. They were cast in moulds engraved into slate and it is testament to their quality that some of these moulds have been in use for over a hundred years.
