Hi Warren,

Did you check the Ward catalogues, which are online available?
Mineralienkontor Dr. A./ F. Krantz (Berlin / Bonn) could otherwise be the supplier. Most of these casts were sold by Krantz. Krantz and Ward had similar (same) casts in their catalogue.

These two casts - an ichthyosaur and a teleosaur -- are in the PRI collection and we are trying to determine where the original specimens might be. We don't think they are part of the collection of casts from Ward's Natural Science Establishment, but they might be. Any suggestions appreciated.
