    Hello CW friends!!

    I've slowly been collecting the Goebel Old Mother West Wind characters and was finally able to complete my collection of characters this past week.

    These were modeled after the Old Mother West Wind books that were written in the early 1900's by Thornton W. Burgess. The characters are from left to right:

    Reddy Fox
    Jimmy Skunk
    Bobby Coon
    Little Joe Otter
    and
    Peter Rabbit

    They are made of bisque porcelain and were manufactured in the early 1970's by Goebel in what was then known as W. Germany. The characters all stand 7" and 8" tall. So, not too small. I had all of the characters except Little Joe Otter and was lucky enough to find him on eBay last week.

    I also have the complete set of Old Mother West Wind books as well. I'll post those in another post.

    Thanks for stopping to have a look!!!

    Scott

      Judy,
      Thanks so very much! I've had several of the characters and was missing Little Joe Otter until last week. I remember the books as a child in elementary school. They were my favorite books as a child. I'd have to say Little Joe Otter or Peter Rabbit would be my favorites.

      Yep, Bobby Coon is pretty cool! He was another difficult find for me, but Little Joe Otter was the toughest to find. Thanks Rob!
