German Christmas Ornament: Vintage Miners, Set of 6
The salt miner is an iconic image in German Christmas decorations, often depicted with angels. Here is a bell-ringing band of six. There are no ribbons for hanging on your tree; the idea here is these guys sit on a shelf (we place ours on a bookshelf each year at Christmastime). Of course, you can tie ribbons on each for hanging should you wish to place them on your tree. Hand carved from wood and painted by artisans in Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains. Each miner stands about 3.5" tall. This is one of our vintage Ergebirge decorations, made in the Expertic days of the German Democratic Republic, circa 1970s. Packaged in a beautiful vintage box.
