The first, this little chimney sweep was a farewell gift from DH's Battalion when we returned to the USA.The stamp on the base shows a trademark that is one of those called "the Last Bee". Like many manufacturers Goebel's trademark underwent periodic changes and after a couple of versions of the "stylized bee" the V and the little bee disappeared completely from their products. This was trademark #3 and was used on items until around 1972. I have no idea what the "Br" means.
The little holy water font with the shepherd and lambs is the one I purchased because I thought it was adorable. I'm not sure if this is meant to represent the figure of the child Jesus because I couldn't find any info. on the web.
I was unable to find any pics of either of these two particular figurines so if anyone else has any ideas I would love to hear about it. Both are a smidge over 5" tall.
