I am pleased to offer this delightful estate sale find. This set was found at a sale in Lancaster, PA. It carries a rich and unique history as it was part of one family for over a hundred years. It was certainly well cared for as it is impeccable. May have been hand made as a toy or simply for a collectors piece. This is a marvelous set of eleven wooden farm animals. Each made of solid wood and each has been hand painted perfectly. Some are even labeled underneath with the type of animal. The set includes a pale pink pig, brown spotted cow, colorful rooster and a tall confident shepard...among others. Each painted with amazing attention to detail from their kind facial features to the texture of their fur and even the hat on the shepard. This is so rare and unique as a complete set is hard to find. I have come across individual animals, but never a complete collection and never in this condition. This is a perfect set with no damage. The paint as vibrant as the day they were made. Would look marvelous on an antique shelf, box, cabinet or just about anyw else. They are lots of fun to work with and will only add character and charm to any room. Size varies from the largest animal around 3.5 inches and the smallest a little under an inch. This is a museum quality collectors piece. It is proudly offered at a very low starting price and free shipping. Please feel free to email me with any questions. Thank you for looking.
