19th Century Folk-art Erzgebirge Ark A wonderful example of a 19th century Erzgebirge German Noahs Ark, With 70 assorted hand carved figures. A completely untouched example with aged repairs on a 10% of the animals with an open top roof. 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.

Size in inches of the ark: H 6 x W 19 x D 4 Units: 70

Origin: Germany Period: 1880 Material: Pine Completely solid in structure and form, fading and wear across all the figures and ark. With aged repairs on 10% of the animals but this does not detract from them standing alone or their decorative quality, the roof in not attached and a small pine bead supports the roof to the boat. This item is over 100 years old and has been used well please expect this in the condition as 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.
