Erzgebirge Ark

A wonderful example of a 19th century Erzgebirge German Noah’s Ark, With 103 assorted hand carved figures. A completely untouched example with aged repairs on a few animals with a hinge top door of the flat base ark. Typically, children played with these toys in the late 19th century and being a special treat on Sundays as these toys are of a biblical theme. This is truly a lovely object and is highly collectable, especially in its untouched condition with so many animals.

Size in inches of the ark: H 22” x W 12” x D 6”
Units: 6 Noah figures, 30 pairs, 37 single animals, equalling 103 pieces
Origin: Germany
Period: 1880
Material: Pine
Item Condition

Completely solid in structure and form, fading and wear across all the figures and ark. With aged repairs on the animals but this does not detract from them standing alone or their decorative quality. Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas in this piece, therefore we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.
