"The collection was started by Mr D. Adolfo Rittwagen and continued by Guillermo Rittwagen. Later it passed into the hands of his nephew D. Francisco José Sànchez de Yebra and Vivas Rittwagen. Allendesalazar says the collection is the largest and most important in Spain and has about a million figures from all periods.

The collection was exhibited for the last time in 1915 at the Hotel Palace and the Palacio de Cristal del Retiro in Madrid. In July 1916 it traveled to Barcelona to be exhibited at the Turó Park.

This collection was formed in the years 1864 \ 94 by D. Adolfo Rittwagen and Zuñiga, and due to the antiquity of its figures and the artistic nature of the models, it can be considered as one of the most worthwhile that exists in the world and of course the unique in Spain…"

A massive and fascinating collection covering many eras. The article does not say what happened to the collection.
Thanks T.

I like the bases. Is that some old standard or 19th century improv? A piece of wire bent and painted green?
