Usually I don't even touch the figurines at thrift stores.
While this one wasn't exactly eye-catching, I picked it up just to see how it was made (typical blown-in-mold, machine-made figure) when I noted that the stamps (both) on the base say, Made in Germany. Not West Germany.
That told me it was either post-wall or pre-WW2. These same stamps, though, are seen on many 1910s-1930s German-made plates, so I'd think this figure to be 1930s.
A nice little rescue. He is currently guarding me, as he watches me type from the shelf behind my head.
