This unique, fashionable chimney sweep from the round smoking figure series of the Seiffener e.G. company is just 12cm tall, but has such a cheerful and good-humoured facial expression, that one has to smile immediately, when looking at this good-luck charm. “Schorchy“ has big black eyes and a broad smile painted across his face. Between his lips, there is a wooden cigarette. His well-shaped eyebrows and his remarkable snub nose underline his friendy appearance. He wears the well-known black chimney sweeps‘s uniform, but in contrast, his head is decorated with painted red hair and an elegant black top hat, that has a big green satin ribbon wrapped around the brim. On the figure‘s big belly, there are also three decorative green dots of different size. Across his right arm, this chimney sweep carries an important tool for his works: His ladder. As his face is already grimed with traces of soot, one might think that „Schorchy“ has already done his job for today, even though he is wearing his fine hat. All parts of the figure’s body are wooden-turned and made from natural material with grain. The chimney sweep’s head and body are made from two different-sized balls, whereas each arm and each leg consist of a half ball. This lovable figure rests on a small platform, from which it can be separated. On this platform, there is a tiny metal setting where the incense cone can be put. Once the cone is lit, the smoke gently rises through the figure and leaves through the open mouth creating the perfect illusion of a smoking chimney sweep. This droll smoker can be either purchased as a single or collectible item as part of a group of smokers. It will undoubtedly put a smile on every viewer’s face.
