He's only about 7/9 inch high, but he packs a lot of fun in that little yellow backpack of his! This little charm is a design from the early to mid-20th century and was hand-painted! Made of composition (an earlier plastic), he's as sweet as sweet can be walking along carrying his skis. He is 3D (not flat on the back) and sports an exciting green and red suit with black shoes!
These sweet little vintage charms were created by a small family run company in Germany. Skilled artisans, using old-world techniques and plenty of time, created these miniatures for over 70 years. These little skiers are from the 1970s or earlier.
The exquisite quality of these miniatures comes directly from the workmanship of the molds, tools and especially from the artisans who create them.
