When Vertunni died in 1953, all the moulds became the property of his "wife" Mrs Bounders. She continued the production more and more slowly till 1980. The painting was less and less precise than the gold-years of Vertunni (1935-1955). When she died in 1983, the Colonel Gautho-Lapeyre bought all the moulds and the Vertunni-licences. No production known between 1983 to 1998. In 1998, Gautho began, with the original moulds, a few production of rares pieces (like the Régent, Du Guesclin, Napoléon III,...and many soldiers and horsemen). His wife, a chineese person, paints the figurines. But his painting is less precise and less beautiful than old painting. The material used for the figurines is lead but the you can see under the bottom, it is smooth. In the original Vertunni, under the bottom you can see like a lot of very little holes. We estimate the Gautho production was about 200 pieces by year. Now, Gautho is about 80 years old and doesn't product any more. The problem is : The moulds are his property, so he can do what he wants. He sold his production as new production, with price as new production. BUT, many people buy new production (the rares pieces of course !) and sell this production as OLD production.
(For a horseman the price for a new one is about 300 dollars, for a old one till 2000 dollars and more !) So many people are disappointed ! Gautho tried to communicate but he is old and his communication is very confused. We hope in the next future, when Gautho will die, useful informations will be given anywhere ...!!!
