Antique German Snow Baby Snowman, W.c. Fields Pic 17.3 Or 17.5 For Sale
Long before I began collecting snow babies, this piece aquired the name "W.C.Fields." I don't know whether the person who molded it had that idea, of if it reminded collectors of W.C. He carries a cane over his right arm, wears a black top hat and a red nose, and he winks! He was made by Hertwig and Co in the 1920s or 30s, and in his top hat he measures just about 1.5" high. There is also a Japanese W.C.Fields and I put a picture of that piece right next to this one so collectors and dealers could compare the two.
This example is in excellent condition. His snow is quite clean and his paint is pretty close to perfect! No other flaws I can see.
