Thoughtfully, the little gardener looks at the apple in his hand. Has the fruit developed well? Should plant another little tree for the coming year? It used to be a normal thing for the children to work diligently in the house and fields and to take responsibility early on. Our gardener may have been sent by his mother to carefully inspect and collect the apples. Is Mama going to make jam or compote from the fruit, or are the apples to be put into the cellar for later? The juicy fruits were – at times when fresh fruit was still scarce in winter – as valuable suppliers of vitamins and energy during the cold season.
In 1984 master sculptor Gerhard Skrobek breathed life into our little fruit lover. Until now, the motif has been kept under lock and key in the archives – now the figurine is being introduced for the first time. Be among the first to hold this original in your hands and order now.
