Ravi-Kunst

Ravi-Kunst was a 1950ies to 1960ies manufacturer of Wooden Fairy Tale 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 what seems to have been not more than two decades. Ravi Kunst came up with motives of their own that you do not find among Hellerkunst or Mertens Kunst items, for example a weather prophet dwarf with a huge toadstool hat.
