It is a depiction of the German folk tale the Bremer (or Bremen) musicians, about some neglected animals who band together to thwart some criminals. This piece was made in Germany by the Heyde company, sometime pre-WW2. It is a heavy piece, not sure if the animals are solid or hollowcast.
It measures 4.25 tall to the top of the rooster's head. Across the base it is 1.75 long.
The donkey, if measure tail to nose, is 2 7/8 long. In addition to toy soldiers and civilian figures, Heyde made humorous anthropomorphic figures, banks, desk items, paper weights, and many souvenir items, all out of the same spelter metal. If you pay by 5:00 E.
I use lots of bubble wrap, peanuts, and good boxes. In a group of multiple pieces each item is wrapped individually. I use a loupe to examine the toys while I'm listing them and I try and mention the significant condition issues I see.
I leave feedback so please do the same. If there is any problem with the item contact me first before leaving feedback, and we'll work it out.
