1950s German Fretwork: Sick Hoerzu-Mecki with A Bottle of Rum

Mecki is the Hedgehog Mascot of vintage and current German TV Magazine Hoerzu. I don’t know anything about the producer of this Mecki, too bad, because it is fantastic work! Look at the second picture here, I tried to capture the paint layers. Look at the shadows on his face and handkerchief. Nowadays children ask “What is that?” if you have a handkerchief made of cloth. And the rum bottle has those gerat details! It’s bilangual too, the name works in German and English! Hand-painted on wood with much varnish.
