    I've been trying for a while to investigate these (lead? zinc?) 2-dimensional figures with no success and am hoping someone here can help. Are they vintage or contemporary production? A couple are marked 'WIEN' on the base - is that the maker or the Austrian city where they were made? If the former, are they still in business? Are they considered 'zinnfiguren'? They are quite finely detailed. The last photo is the box they came in with notations I cannot decipher, Any help or history appreciated.

      Not sure if this helps...

      Wien is simply the word for Vienna in German (the national language in Austria). You pronounce it “Veen” with a V. So Wien and Vienna are the same place.
