Hand-crafted in Germany, this Scottish bagpipe player is ready to brighten up your Christmas tree; though unfortunately without sound.
He is accompanied by a snowman dressed up in tartan.
They are both 3.5" tall and wooden. They each arrive in a presentation gift box.
Though patently Scottish in design, the collection is much more culturally German; and internationally renowned too.
Herr Steinbach founded his workshop in the village of Hohenhamein. That was over two hundred years ago, but his wooden decoration proved to be quite popular!
From humble beginnings, Steinbach Wood Ornaments are now collected throughout the world.
Karla Steinbach is the latest in a long line of artisans in the decoration making clan. She will pass on her skills and the company to the next generation; just as she learned her craft from her father Christian.
Both of the cute fellows on the right are her creations.
All Steinbach wooden decorations are made by hand. They are hand-painted too, all pretty much as the original Herr Steinbach crafted them in the 18th century.
You know that every decoration that you receive is unique, because no human endeavor could make it identical to all of the rest. A lot of loving care went into them first.
