Title Winterhilfswerk ceramic figures in peasant costume
Nationality German
Period c 1936-37
Price £50.00

Winterhilfswerk (WHW) was a state organisation dedicated to the relief of the poor and the homeless during the winter months (October to March). Little hand painted ceramic figures (originally on pins), of which these are representative, were given out by WHW personnel in the street in exchange for contributions.

The condition of these (averaging approximately 4 cms in height) is by and large good, but one neck has been broken and glued and there is a chip to the front of one foot. Also, the pin backing has been pulled out, which was common practice by American veterans, who brought this material back from Germany after WW2.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
