Title: Thin White Posts
Post by: Raven on October 20, 2017, 10:49:13
The parts on the left are from performing seals sets, but what about the three on the right?

Can anyone tell me where they are from and what they were used for?

Those are also from circus sets - horse obstacles, I think?

Yep, from the color horse trick riders 3642 (http://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showinv.pl?setnum=3642)

Bits on the left are from 3518 (or similar). They're used to hold a ball in a seal's mouth. The really big round thing is a base for a round table from some other set.

I agree with all the comments above. I can only add that the table base was also used as a stand for traffic barriers in such sets as 3204x and the horse obstacles appeared in circus set 3545 too.

Thank you!  It looks like one end is made to be supported by the circus ring Ė I like that.  I donít have a circus anymore, though, and I canít think of any other use for them (unlike the performing seal parts, which are useful stands for many things), so I guess they will now be moved to the Exiting The House box...

Oh yes, I never thought of that!

I thought it odd that it wasn't the same at each end.

That is awesome!  ;D

The one with the large round base was also used as a tabletop stand in the Camper set 3258. This set had two versions, one yellow and one blue, and each seems to have the same table. Mundobil has the part number as 30 02 6390 (minus the small piece connected to the top in your photo- I have a few of those as well and they all come off) and lists it with a number of different sets. https://www.mundobil.com/sku=30026390
