Seller. Absolutely Nice Vintage.
"Handmade folk art items are always one of the most appealing to us here at Absolutely Nice. We're suckers for anything unusual, novelty or miniature and these funny little bottle toppers are no exception.
Folk Art is the art of the everyday. It is rooted in traditions that come from community and culture and expresses cultural identity by conveying shared community values and aesthetics. Traditionally it encompasses a range of utilitarian and decorative media, including cloth, wood, paper, clay, metal and more.
Various locations are attributed to the origins of these wonderful little figures. From the Black Forest area of Germany to Switzerland and Italy, they date anywhere from the 1920s through to the 1950s.
This dapper chap has a little string attached to his back and once pulled politely tips his hat and bows his head. Whether using for their intended purpose or simply for a novelty ornament, these mischievous pals are sure to bring a smile to any face.
In general good condition for their age with signs of wear including marks, scratching and some chips all commensurate with age.
