Fir Tree - 4" tall
Made in the Erzgebirge
These fir trees are very special. Their production was a lost art revived by the Werner Workshop. As explained in the Werner catalog: "With the invention of new stamping and embossing techniques, production of intricate and highly detailed toys began in the Western Erzgebirge in 1861. Economic production of cardboard products gave rise to an industry that employed more than 1200 workmen and 140 engravers.
When the last factory, in Buchholz, closed in 1953, it wasn't just the pretty toys that disappeared from the market. Along with them went the know-how and craft skills needed to make them, from making the tools used to produce them through to the application of the last lick of paint. These fir trees prove that we have succeeded in reviving a lost craft and in creating trees that are, like no others, in harmony with our forest animals."
