C 1860/80 Erzgebirge/putz German Village 19 Pieces, All Hand Painted Rare Set Nr For Sale
Thisis the most wonderful set of early, early, early German ERZGEBIRGE village houses, church, meeting hall, etc. There are a total of 19 wonderful pieces all from the 1860's. I have owned one other set years ago andit was not as nice as this one.Please peruse all of the photos as they are much more descriptive than my words will ever be.
Measurements: Just to give an idea of the general size of the pieces.
The small pink house is 1 1/4" tall (3 cm),1 3/4" (4 cm)wide, and a 1/4" (1cm)deep. It is the smallest of all of the houses. Photo 1 on the left.
The gateway (white with crosses) is 2 1/4" tall (6 cm), 1 3/4" (4+cm)wide and 7/16" (1-2 cm)deep. Photo 10. Though it is missing paint in photo 10 the reverse side is fine.
The Church is a little over 4" (10 cm)tall to the top of the steeple, 2 5/8" (6+ cm)wide and 1/2" (1+ cm)deep. Photo 7
The Community/Government Building is 3 1/4" tall (8 cm), 2 1/4" (6 cm)wide and 1/2" ( 1+ cm) deep. Photo 3
From the photos you can see that there is a mixture of pink, yellow and bluish white houses all with red roofs.
These pieces are OLD so you can expect to have some aging, paint smears, missing paint etc. Photos 8, 10, & 11.
There are FOUR corner houses as noted in photo 5. My other set did not have an corner houses and before owning this set, had never seen them before.
This is just the sweetest set that I have had the pleasure of owning for the past 10-15 years and now it could be yours:-)
