Traditional Wooden German Animal Toys (18th/19th century) | Old Fashioned Toys

Circus and domestic, Noah's ArkWe see a number of wild and tame animals going for a walk in our picture. An elephant, a cow, a lion, a bear and two poodles. They are already old, and belong to the eighteenth century. Or perhaps they from Noah’s Ark. We see at once that they are made out of wood.Former toy-makers could carve and paint much better than those of to-day, but the latter could learn to do again if they would get this book and look at it carefully.
