Ostheimer's Hen Brown On Nest is being such a good mother chicken, keeping her eggs warm until they're ready to hatch into fluffy chicks. She has been carefully handpainted using shade of brown and golden orange, with a red crest.
This handcrafted timber toy is a lovely addition to a farmyard scene. Our Ostheimer Hen Brown On Nest is 3.5cm high.
All Ostheimer Animal Toys are traced by hand in Germany onto natural, native hardwood (maple, elm, or ash), before being cut and sanded and then finished off by hand with up to six coats of non-toxic, water-soluble, transparent colour that is designed to show the beautiful woodgrain beneath. The soft edges of each toy are a hallmark of Ostheimer and what makes them just so lovely to play with. All Ostheimer toys meet the European and international safety standards and the European NORM EN 71 for toys.
As each Ostheimer toy is created and finished by hand, they vary slightly in terms of shape, colouring, and the amount of woodgrain or knots showing through the colouring. Each piece is perfectly unique. Please note that are not varnished.
