Spelter footballers - what are they ?

Post by sentimental salvage »

They’re big, they’re old, 35cm figures, made of Spelter, pull wooden knob and they kick ...Obviously part of a large sideshow/fairground game...Any ideas ?

From a fairground side-stall game I'd say, almost certainly not coin operated. Very cool though.

Fantastic, I like those! They have different heads too. What are the other smaller figures and bits , one looks like a smaller goal keeper?

I think the goalkeeper is from something else...It’s schoolboy project crude...The rest of the bits are the arms/torsos/heads that have come off the players.

they look a lot like the cast iron coin kickers, which were used in bars, to kick a penny into a beerglas.
are they for sale?
