Lerwick Shetland Islands; Scalloway
notes: One of the more
common Goss animals. It was listed in the 9th
edition of The Goss Record as being in preparation and both the
Lerwick and Scalloway agents are indicated there as having a special
model, so presumably the model was almost ready to go into production
in 1921 and was available from both agents with appropriate arms. The
model also turns up reasonably regularly bearing arms of towns around
Dartmoor in Devon, so it was perhaps marketed there as a model of a
local Dartmoor pony.
