All in a box marked "Soldats Artistiques, specialite pour collectionneurs, soldats en tous genres" (literally: Soldiers Art for specialty collectors, soldiers of all kinds) with the retailer name Seldenslagh in Bruxelles. The brown box has the original straw and two squares of paper at the bottom. The label has been applied to the plain lid

 

all figures in excellent condition with some extended spears a little crooked but easily straightened as the lead is quite soft. The box is complete with od staples in corners of lid. Black printing on white label is all intact, just a little grubby to RHS and previous owner has made some markings
