Have a lot of postcards all of the same design, but I only have one with a sculptors name. Is anyone out there collecting these cards apart from me. I would love to know who created these models.
Thanks Lofty.

Why have you included a lot of HTML code nonsense in your post?

Is there on the back no information about the printer of these postcards?
And another option might be an image search on Google, to find similar items.
Kind regards,

Not to sound snarky or anything, but I'm guessing the sculptor is Albert Wolff and the sculpture is from the "Heimkehr" series; the word means "homecoming" in German. Based on a quick google search, it seems Herr Wolff was a sculptor of the mid-to-late 19th century who mostly did patriotic and military pieces.

It is a sculpture "Heimkehr, Soldat mit Familie" - "Home coming, soldier with family" by Carl Conrad Albert Wolff (1814-1892).
