1950s Original Bergischer Engel: Snow White in Glass Casket

Mrs. Gruner-Witkop, who had turned 90 in November 2018, told me in February 2019 on the telephone that she remembers having used two different kinds of wood: Soft wood for the fairy tale wood figures and harder material for the jumping jacks. She and her father, who had taken care of most of the business matters (with Mrs.Gruner-Witkop having mostly, but not only, been the artist) called it “fairy tale wood” vs. “jumping jack wood”.
