1930s Hellerkunst ☆ Rain Children with Red Cape and Big Umbrella

These beautiful rain children were hanging in the old nursery of Dr.Reiner Muehlbach (born in 1935), together with a whole collection of Hellerkunst Fairy Tale Wood Figures that were most likely bought together. That was in Dresden where, as in most families, his mother presumably told him all the fairy tales that went with his wall figures. The rain children don’t belong to a Brothers Grimm fairy tale, but they seem to tell their own story, especially about how engaging and loving with each other they are.
