Snow Scene Figures

Skating scenes have long dominated miniature snow scenes.  The impetus for this was an Olympic skater from Norway named Sonja Henie.  Sonja was a popular contestant, and eventually made it to the silver screen in Hollywood movies.  It is hard to find an older skating figure that doesn't somehow resemble Sonja's attire.  The tradition of making skating and winter sport scene started with these lead miniatures.

 Modern scenes can be modern or historical.
