I LOVE A GOOD TOTEM POLE
TOY TOTEM POLES for 54mm figures
During the course of buying and selling figures I often come across toy Totem Poles. These are the accessories that go with American Indian figures however the totem pole is really indigenous to the tribes from the North West Pacific Region.
That never bothered the toy figure manufacturers who of course leant heavily on the movies and TV series of the 50’s and 60’s where every Indian camp had tepees, totem poles and a good old camp fire. Not intending to have a collection I suddenly found myself with a fair few of these toys in an old box including the very nice Herald/Britain’s poles produced from the 50’s onwards. After some time I noticed that these started to turn up in different colours and base shape variations.
If you like Totem Poles you may find this interesting but if you would rather watch paint dry I’ll understand. Here are the poles I have. Some of these are, I guess, fairly rare. If you are interested in buying any let me know. Err… camp fires and other obscure stuff to follow soon 🙂
