This is for a Vintage Antique German Pre WWII Wooden Candle Holder with Birds. Sent from the Russian Zone. Tall when hung (top to bottom). Great condition, see also pictures. There are no breaks, chips, or cracks.During the WW2 Nazi German prisoners were housed here in Rochester NY at Cobbs Hill. One of the ladies who had a freezer at the ice drying house befriended one of the prisoners, who was just a young kid.
She would write to his parents and tell them he was alright and was getting plenty to eat, etc. This woman wrote several letters and looked out for the POW for almost a year. At the end of the war the mother of this POW sent her this gift in gratitude. It was already old when she sent it. It is probably 1920's-1930's vintage wow!This was an important gift!
