When I was a child I played with these four heavy Amish figures: Papa, Mama, sister and brother. I don't remember when I came to own them; maybe when my parents downsized to move to a retirement community in the 90s. I also don't know how my parents came to acquire them.
Once I owned them I started to collect more.
I'd see them in antique stores. Some were salt and pepper containers.
Others just figures. I have never found any like my original family of four.
Some are obviously newer than others.
These two sit on a bench.
These two are part of an ash tray.
My last three purchases are these. Larger than the others, they are banks.
I still look when I venture into an antique store but its been years since I've seen any to purchase.
Besides I don't know where I'd put them.
