This vintage, miniature all-wood carousel comes in it's original box. It was made in East Germany, in the Erzgebirge area (Thurgian Mountains). The little carousel actually turns! There are tiny little men riding little horses! The little carousel measures 3 14" tall, and each little man on a horse is 1" tall. The little piece dates to the 1960's or 1970's, and is really in near mint condition - there are no breaks, damage or paint issues. East and West Germany only existed from 1945 until 1989, when Germany was reunified. The country was divided by the Allies after World War II. The Erzgebirge area has been home to artisans for hundreds of years! The area is heavily wooded, so many of the items from the area are made from wood. The have been famous for miniature wooden people, animals, buildings and pieces like this. This one comes in it's original hand made staple constructed box. The box has browned over the years, and the cardboard is "fragile". The box is in excellent condition! You can see the darkening when the lid is removed, as there is a lighter area under the lid. The little carousel is really marvelous, and would be darling with a Christmas Putz village (the village scenes that people display under their Christmas trees).
