Thanks Mr. Watson.
I really like the work you've done for Safari Ltd.
I hope to see more Doug Watson's figure in the future from Safari or other companies..

The Triceratops is an old model I bought when I was a child ( maybe in 1975 or 1976).
I don't remember if it's from Orsenigo ( maybe...).
I bought it in Natural History Museum of Milano where the 1:1 model still stands (  http://www.tripadvisor.it/LocationPhotoDirectLink-g187849-d1901978-i97564582-Civico_Museo_di_Storia_Naturale-Milan_Lombardy.html ).

Regards.  :)

I am glad you like my work, no plans to stop just yet.

I don't own any Orsenigo dinos and I am no expert but I am pretty sure you have one there. According to the Dinosaur Collectibles guide they did two. The big one doesn't have teeth showing, the small one does. The value given for the big one back in 1999 was $200 - $250 USD. When I have seen them sold they always go in the hundreds.
If you go here http://www.dinosaurcollectorsitea.com/oresnigo.htm you can see the Oresnigo Triceratops, sure looks like a match to me right down to the yellow eyes. Randy talks about some possible knock offs called Marvel but I have not seen those so have no idea what they look like.
Randy Knol AKA the Dinosaur Collector is a member here so maybe you could PM him and ask his opinion

Thank you very much for the info.
Yes, it's an Orsenigo ( there is a printed label on its belly "ORSENIGO - Made in Italy " ).
I have also the "brontosaurus" from the same line.
Unfortunately it's seriously damaged ( warped) because it has been for a long time in a toy box with others toys.....  :-\

Best Regards

Great luck! That Brontosaurus looks like one of the baby mammoths that were found in the Siberian Permafrost :D
I wonder if that material would respond to a hairdryer to restore the shape? If that's the big one value in 1999 was also $200 - $250 USD

That's a great modern collection and I am honoured that you have some of the ones I have sculpted for Safari Ltd. Also honoured that you collect the Wildlife Wonders line, I have done all of those so far (except for the repaints).
One piece stands out though for being from a different era , on page 5, I believe that is an Orsenigo Triceratops from Italy in the 60s, am I correct? But what I am really intrigued by in is the 1:1 Triceratops beside it that was either the model for the toy or was inspired by the toy. Is that in a museum? Were all the Orsenigos based on life sized models in an Italian museum?

P.S. Nice crisp photography as well!!

In this video ( from 1:00 min ) the Triceratops 1:1 model in Natural History Museum of Milano (used for the Orsenigo toy ):



That's an "old school" model from seventies, very popular among the kids visiting this italian museum.

I congratulate you have one of the best collections of dinosaurs, prehistoric animals and animals in general of the forum members, you have figures that I think few forum members have as tiptoi dinosaurs, GeoWorld other prehistoric mammals, dinosaurs Science Museum natural Britain and Sideshow mosasaurus that cost a fortune.

Moreover he is welcome to share these photos with all of us.

This is a truly enviable collection. I especially like the creative approaches to displaying swimming/flying things. The brackets are very clever.
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.

I've been a casual collector for years, since I was a kid (...long, long time ago...).
In my country it's easy to find only Schleich/JP stuff..
Then I found a Papo reseller 3 years ago so I started to collect in a more serious way.
The only thing I should need is more space because I'm also a book collector and a movie collector (dvd/blu-ray).
And my house isn't big enough.... ;)

I know the feeling! I also collect fossils, taxidermy, cuddly toys, Thomas the Tank Engine stuff (embarrassing at my age, I know, don't rub it in!) and the odd Living Dead Doll. I've also been tempted towards those lovely resin dolls from Asia but seriously? £150 FOR A DOLL??? I seriously don't need to be doing this to myself! That and if it wasn't for university I'd probably accumulate pets as well. We're gonna need a bigger house...  :))

Really nice collection, I especially like that you suspended your marine animals on the shelves. How'd you do that?

Simply with long L brackets (brown) and a strong tape ( flying reptiles and marine reptiles).
I used also finger food plastic square cups as a base (upright) for marine reptiles.

Thanks. I've been trying to figure out a way to display my marine life figures for a while, now to find space...
