Set of 6 Kunstlerschutz/Wagner animals, handmade, 1960s
|Online Auction Description|
Add a touch of wild to your holiday decorations! Or simply display some jungle creatures for the fun of it. These are sometimes called Wagner animals, Wagner-Tiere, or Kunstlerschutz animals. The Wagner Handwork Company created little creatures from the 1940s to 1970s. These were made in West Germany, according to the labels.
A lion, tiger, giraffe, zebra, elephant, camel, all made by hand. Size varies slightly; the giraffe is tallest at about 3 3/4â. The elephant is lacking one tusk; otherwise, they are in great condition.
The materials used were soft rabbit fur, cotton fibers and only non-toxic paints. For wild beasts these are very well behaved: the lion hasn't tried to eat the zebra yet and the tiger knows better than attack the giraffe. Camels are notorious for their bad tempers but this one hasn't snarled even once, that we know of... Perhaps the elephant keeps them all in line.
The style of the label indicates these were made in the 1960s. Each animal has a label.
