Rare advertising display statues of Canterbury Belts Ltd representing Crimean War soldiers
These are a pair of scary looking statues depicting a Royal Army Hussar officer during the Crimean War in the mid 1800s. The soldier is from the 11th Hussars (light horsemen cavalry) which was part of the Light Brigade that carried out the Charge of the Light Brigade. On the front of the statue base "Canterbury Belts Ltd." is written on it while on the back "artistic latex form co. - n.y." is embossed in small text. Each soldier is 25" tall and about 17" wide (including the pole). These were advertising display pieces for Canterbury Belts Ltd. of Christchurch, New Zealand. Belts hung on the poles through the shoulders. They are made of some kind of latex or plastic by the Artistic Latex Form Co., NY. They are from the 1950s or 1960s since this company went out of business in or around 1963.
