Ostheimer's Hen White Standing is staring at the ground, just about to peck at something tasty. She is a lovely piece, with bright red and yellow features against a natural beige timber base.
This handcrafted timber toy is a lovely addition to a farmyard scene. Our Ostheimer White Hen Standing stands at 4cm 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.
