The Toy Peddler - JP3308

  • Sale
  • Regular price $9.95

Carrying his load of painted boxes and toys this traveler walks the mountain trails in search of business. Called a kraxentræger, his journey is eagerly awaited by many children.

This "salesman" was first presented on the cover of our Artist's Journal, Winter 1991, but was never taught. So here we would like to share with a toy border and some revisions of the original design.
