C.B.G. Gerbeau period. Third Republic, line infantry (1875). Figurines of the first type, with small head, manufactured around 1880. This 23-piece set (the rider counts as 2), is made up of an officer on horseback and seven musicians, as well as a flag bearer, an officer and twelve soldiers. The soldiers are homogeneous, but the musicians seem to come from a different lot. Good condition for these 140 year old soldiers. No box.
