Vintage c. 1870s Antique Erzgebirge German Miniature Wooden Wheeled Boat Bottom Noah's Ark Toy Noah & Wife Animal Figurines

Measures roughly 14" long, 5.5" wide, 9.5" in height. This has wooden wheels AND a boat-bottom, making it a scarce & sought-after item. It is decorated with, as opposed to paper lithography, which became common when these were being produced. Paint has peeled considerably, which adds to its rustic vintage appeal. Sold with a total of 8 Figurines: 1 Noah, 1 wife, 2 giraffes, 2 bears, 1 horse, and 1 animal that looks like a civet or ocelot, and is missing a rear leg. Noah & his wife stand roughly 4" tall. Both giraffes are thoroughly aged, showing significant cracking in legs (although metal underwire/frame/skeleton are intact, making giraffes structurally sound. Please note one of the hinges which opens the hatch on the roof is a little bit loose, as it's missing one of the tiny nails securing the wooden slat to the metal hinge. Very nice. Sold as pictured.
