Description

I truly love this cool German figurine!
This treasure is amazingly handcarved and hand painted, and it's so fun to see all the little details.
This graceful faced grandpa has a purple nose, he probably had a couple of drinks with his friends at the market place when he buying his goods in the white bags. It could be grain or salt, but whatever it is, he is holding that bag very preciously. Do you see the cute patches on his outfit? (oh, look at that polka dotted patch on his back!). His life had not been very wealthy but you can feel the simple composure from his face. He might be thinking of his family, how happy they will be with the "things" in the bags.
A small bottle in his right pocket for a short break, and the mule (It could be a horse but it looks more likely be a mule to me) with huge eyes is checking back on his old bud.
The mule's neck moves up and down and I believe the missing ears and tail work with the same mechanism.
This cool piece will tell you so many stories if you listen closely.
Artist signed on the bottom, overall in great condition with some chips.

Approximate measurements : 8.5" X 7"
