MERTENS-KUNST (1936-2001) #germanwallfigures ♡

The founder of Mertens-Kunst was Alfred Mertens, born in 1898. Later on, his children took over. Alfred Mertens’ son led the manufactury and his daughter Ute Mertens (1937-1996) became the artist from the 1960s. Mertens-Kunst produced until the 1990s. Bino.de currently sells wood toys and it carries the last Mertens-Kunst Logo and “Mertens GmbH” on their website. Wall figures are not being produced by “Mertens” anymore. The last ones were printed around 1990.
