A blast from the past, often less is more, basic bricks, slopes and plates with lots of colour. No grey other than on the minifigures and accessaries.
The bar was set very high by Lego with this and other early sets 375 Castle and the 1952 Town square.
I prefer the greater range of later castle elements i.e.: round helmets, horses, horse barding, cloth etc but this was a time when Lego had their landscaping under control, I’ve always liked this conifer.
Lego wasn't shabby in producing a unique minifigure torso design for the male spectator. (King? No crowns back then).
I see from looking on bricklink that the gold print has often been a victim of play and time and has not lasted as well as other colours; I hope Lego are not using the same gold colour now?
