Offering a SET of early GERMAN hand carved wooden putz ANIMALS circa 1880-1900. The set included cows, horses and dogs? alongside a feeder with original shaved hay! A perfect addition for a nativity, a larger scaled dollhouse or alongside your favorite dolls!
Completely hand carved and hard to find sponge painting. Wonderful primitive quality and character not found in later examples. The tails on the cows are painted string and tail on one of the horses and deer? is a separate carved piece that fits snugly into the body. I can't say enough about these charming pieces. They stand approx. 2" tall.
Really amazing condition considering the age and they were made to be played with by children! All stand freely EXCEPT two of the cows which need to be propped since each are missing part of a leg (perfect in a dollhouse toy shop)! Age appropriate wear to paint and a few broken ears, as shown.
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 examples from the regions of Erzgebirge, Grulich and Thuringia with be offered. I also have a set of sheep from the same time period available separately.
