54mm Holger Eriksson
Holger Eriksson cast his first miniature figure in 1934, an event that became the start of a unique artistic career. The figure was produced entirely by him, from sketch to modelling, mould, casting and cleaning to painting.
Holger Eriksson was born in 1899, in the village of Bolhyttan, Sweden.
About 1925, Holger Eriksson started to sculpt in wood. He carved horses, cowboys and indians, camel riders, knights, foot soldiers and a field gun, all in 54 mm.
Later, the idea of casting figures matured and he cast the first figure with the initials HE on the base in 1934.
