Offering two highly collectible and seldom seen 1880-90 GERMAN Erzgebirge Menagerie pieces. These museum worthy items are attributed to C.A. Müller Oberleutensdorf. The zookeeper is made of a dough mass material (dough was the earliest material used with these putz figurines). He carries a bent metal crook herding tool and is carrying a pail with metal handle. The bear is made of papier mache and rare flocked cloth dust covering (veloutiert). Fine and rare examples of early putz toys. Much nicer than photos allow. Notice the detailing. Simply charming.

The zookeeper measures 4.5" tall. Bear is 3.75" wide and 2" tall. The zookeeper is in excellent condition with minor wear. The bear is in very good condition with some cracking and minor loss to flocking material.

I am in the process of listing MANY early German carved and composition figures from the early 1800's to early 1900's. Many fine, museum worthy examples from the regions of Erzgebirge, Grulich, Seiffen and Thuringia with be offered. Please see the last several photographs for The last 2 photos are from the beautiful reference book on early German Erzgebirge & Thuringia toys written by Maria & Dieter Leipold/ Susan Bickford.
