RAVI-KUNST / 1941-1967 / Artist Lisa Viertel

Ravi-Kunst was a 1940ies to 1960ies manufacturer of German Wall Figures located in Hamburg, in the north of Germany. Besides the Wall Plaques there were also very lovely jumping jack items being produced in not more than two decades. Ravi-Kunst came up with many motives that you do not find among Hellerkunst or Mertens Kunst items, for example a weather prophet dwarf with a huge toadstool hat.
