Handcrafted Animal Figures 

To find a retailer near you, click here.

If you would like to carry these wood collectibles in your shop, contact us for order and price information.

We have a passion for the traditional wood handicrafts of the Erzgebirge region of Germany. We scour the small villages, always looking for new and unique items. On a recent trip to Germany, we discovered a collection of handcrafted animal figures, including cats, penguins, seagulls, chickens, owls, and bears. Some of the wood animal figures come with whimsical Christmas hats that will brighten your home during the holiday season. The cats, penguins, seagulls, chickens, and owls are from Drechslerei Torsten Martin, and several of these designs have been awarded the coveted “Tradition and Form” design prize  from the Verband Erzgebirgischer Kunsthandwerker und Spielzeughersteller e.V. The good luck bears are from Günter Reichel Kunstgewerbliche Holzwaren.

Here's what you'll find on this page:

Cat Collectibles

Handcrafted Cats (Katzen) from Drechslerei Martin

We'd like to introduce our line of cats:

  • Karli is gray and black
  • Hilde is black and white
  • Bommel is ochre and black
  • Emmi is yellow
  • Charlie is ochre
  • Moritz is natural
  • Kurt is black and white and has a red bowtie

Each cat figure comes in 3 poses: sitting, on the lookout (tail in the back and up),  and contented (tail on the side). Uncle and aunt cat figures show the front legs. Christmas cats have Santa caps.
