Vintage Traditional Christmas Wooden Erzgebirge Smoker - West Germany Räuchermann - Night Watchman Incense Burner

Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a traditional wooden Christmas Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains in Germany) Smoker or Räuchermann, marked West Germany on his trumpet, which means he was made any time between 1949 and 1990. I would guess the seventies though.

The figure appears to be a night watchman with a trumpet, pike, and lamp, a traditional motif for a 'smoker', which is designed to burn cone incense, allowing the smoke to exit through the figure's mouth. This incense burner has been lightly used.

CONDITION: Excellent with wool beard and hair.

SIZE: About 9 inches tall.
