Memories were rekindled for me by a lovely post from Gina showing some traditionally hand carved wooden figures from the Ore Mountains, an area that spans south-eastern Germany (Saxony) and north-western Czechia.
me that we too had some similar carved figures. I am not 100% sure that ours were made in the Ore Moutains. They were purchased by us at an outdoor Christmas market in Hamburg many moons ago. But where are they now? The hunt was on. Eventually I managed to located the box in which I had hidden them away. It was a delight to rediscover and see them again, especially as I uwrapped each item carefully from the many layers of protective tissue paper.
