Authentic Erzgebirge Figurines and Ornaments From Germany
Our selection of classic Erzgebirge bunny figurines and ornaments are all handcrafted by artists and toymakers in Erzgebirge. These handicrafts take pride of place on the Christmas market stalls worldwide and in souvenir shops throughout Germany.
Take a look at our diverse selection of traditional Erzgebirge wood figurines and ornaments below.
The tradition of making wooden handicrafts began in the 1700s when miners in Saxony needed to make an income, and wood was plentiful. While the Christmas scenes, figurines, and pyramids are some of the most popular and well-known Erzgebirge crafts, the bunny or rabbit figurines with eggs hold a special place in German history. Rabbits are associated with springtime and fertility and became the symbol of Easter. The folklore art of Erzgebirge makes a great collector’s item to be passed down between generations, just like our Black Forest cuckoo clocks.
Make sure to look for the trademark symbol “Echt Erzgebirge-Holzkunst mit Herz” on the product to make sure it’s not an imitation. This helps support the continued craftsmanship of handmade wooden crafts.
We also have a fantastic selection of Christmas Erzgebirge figures that make a perfect addition to your Christmas decorations, like snowmen, carolers, and Wippels. Explore our range online today.
