Karl Schrickel Pelztiere - Original Fur Animals
Handmade in Neustadt bei Coburg - Western Germany
While on a buying trip to Western Germany back in February 1989, a glassblower
friend recommended that we visit the family-run Karl Schrickel Pelztiere to check
out their traditional fur animals. As they were located in the next town, we drove
right over to the workshop, where the owners warmly welcomed us and gave us
a tour of their business. All of the animals offered here were purchased directly
from the family on that day. Sadly, this old-time business closed their doors more
than 20 years ago, so this is our final offering of these unique collectible toys.
About the Fur used to make the Toys
Before we purchased these toy animals,
we asked the family where they sourced
the rabbit fur used in their creation. They
showed us how the animals were made
using only left-over scraps that would
otherwise have been thrown away.
Available in Limited Quantities
Due to the rarity of these vintage toys,
only limited quantities are available.
These fur animals
are all tagged with
the original round
trademark label.

Do note that due to their handmade nature, each fur animal is one-of-a-kind.
