This is the best set of old skittles or toy bowling pins I've found--a complete set of 10, in excellent shape, with all three original balls, and these great swinging arms to make knocking them down all the more dramatic! And the color palette is fantastic with five different schemes for the soldiers' uniforms. I also really love the super alert, purse-lipped expressions on their faces, which make one rather wish to spare them from an oncoming ball!
I believe these are French, c. 1930s or so. Pins measures 6 1/2" tall and 1 7/8" across at shoulders; balls are 1 1/2" in diameter. Scuffs here and there but really excellent condition, with all of their arms still very firmly attached and smoothly swinging.
