Here is only one of 2 French made figures from my glossy collection. It dates like my Britains glossies from the 1950s. Anyone have any info on it?

Randy,

There used to a member named Mignot who hasn't posted lately but who collected only Mignot I believe. He may be able to help you.

Randy: On the Mignot sales list there is a boxed Napoleon with grey riding coat and boxed for $32.00 for foot figure.Napoleon field marshalls mounted on wood bases sell for$59.00@
I happen to receive a new list yesterday from the US dealer. I don't collect Mignots but bought other figures from him. He also has the nice Mignot book for sale over 250 pages-650 photos (580) in color for$85.00 or $70.00 with any order.
Here is the address and he would probably send you a list of his figures.

Hello,

You have got a great figure there. The figure is Napoleon en redingote, or Napoleon I in his riding coat/great coat. Mignot also made a dismounted Napoleon without the coat, just in the uniform of the Chasseur a Cheval. With the box, and in that condition, I would say the figure could demand between 75 and 100 dollars depending on the buyer. The figure dates from the late 50s, early 60s.

Everyone, sorry I have not been checking in, going from an unemployed historian to an employed one, trying to make it in academia, has been a time-consuming adjustment. Alas, all my mignots are still boxed up.

Take care!

Thank you very much for your expert information about my Napoleon figure. I was told you were the one to talk to.:) I think I probably got it from Peter Blum's Soldier Shop in NYC in the late 1950s.
