More Chasseurs of the early years

Thanks Andre for sending these
He says:

More chasseurs, but this time paper ones: a few chasseurs d’Orléans (name of the chasseurs à pied from 1842 to 1848), soldiers, trumpeters and officers.

These are not from Epinal but from Strasbourg (made by an artist called Silbermann). These soldiers were made to be cut up, glued to wooden bases and displayed erect, so they are in fact toy soldiers. Enjoy!
