Carved German Smoker - Bavarian with Stein and Gingerbread Heart
Finely handcrafted German smoker
Handmade in the Erzgebirge region of Germany
5.5 inches tall
This stunning hand carved German smoker is dressed in the traditional German outfit of a Bayer, a German term meaning a real Bavarian. The body lifts away from the feet to house the incense cone and smoke flows from the mouth when the smoker is in use. His outfit, in various shades of wood grain colors, features a dark colored Tyrolean hat with white edelweiss flower in the band, a necklace with a pretzel decoration tied to it, a light colored jacket and dark colored pants. This proud Bavarian is holding his brown and white beer stein and a traditional Oktoberfest Lebkuchenherzen, or decorated heart shaped gingerbread cookie as he has a relaxing drink in the Biergarten. The edelweiss flower which is a popular symbol of Bavaria is proudly on display. With his festive outfit, his beer stein filled and his gingerbread heart in hand for his sweetheart, this Bavarian is really celebrating Oktoberfest the traditional way!
