1960s Graupner: Night Watch Child with Village

Hobby fretwork craft using a template, hand-painted on plywood, 17cm. German Babyboomer children might have a homely feeling with this figure. We have a tradition of walking in the dark with colorful paper lanterns on Saint Martin’s day (November 11th), a whole bunch of children together with their parents. This little boy reminds me of those wonderful memories with warm lights, having a beautiful time together and already anticipating Christmas coming next month.
