    a cute miniature figurine of a miner made of metal like material.
    Stands on a pyrite (?) clog that is set up again on a black yellow stone
    any idea who created these and what the base material might be?
    Thanks in advance and greetings 20220314_164741_copy_1209x1209.jpg 20220314_164755_copy_1209x1209.jpg 20220314_164701_copy_1209x1209.jpg 20220314_164645_copy_1209x1209.jpg

    Hard to say who made it,a number of companies were making them 40 years ago including a company in Germany.

    The piece he is standing on is too blurry in the photo.

    How is the figure attached? Maybe he and what he's standing on are a single casting, all of one metal.
