Seiffener Volkskunst "Take it Easy" Characters

The "Take it Easy" incense smokers from Seiffener Volkskunst present themselves with red noses, traditional clothing, and genuine mustaches. Alongside hunters, mushroom gatherers, and coachmen, our selection also naturally includes teachers and dentists. They all infuse a dash of Erzgebirge's zest for life and groundedness into the room. With their plump forms and pipes in their mouths, the smoking figurines convey a truly relaxed impression.

Traditional Smoking Figures by SVK

The gentlemen of the "Take it Easy" series are predominantly portrayed in traditional professions. As is customary for SVK, the wooden figures are meticulously detailed. The perpetually rosy cheeks of the smoking men attest to the dedication they put into their work.

The smoking man "Railway Worker" seems to have emerged from a different era, exuding a touch of romance through his vocation. The red sash and classic official's cap identify the smoking man as an official railway worker. The signal paddle in his hand clears the way for the incoming train.

The "Teacher" (16532) holds a piece of chalk and waits until one of his students writes the correct answer on the blackboard. Armed with a pointer stick as well, he remains remarkably composed, making it unlikely for any misbehaving child to get a tap on the fingers. The attire of this figure diverges from the modern teacher, as the old-school look features a bowtie with a blue vest and a newsboy cap.

If you're the owner of an Italian restaurant or simply a fan of Mediterranean cuisine, you'll surely appreciate our "Pizza Baker", complete with the large, white toque on his head. With a huge pizza peel, he has just pulled the latest order out of the oven. The Italian's pizza is topped with salami, herbs, and olives - Mamma Mia, it'll make your mouth water!

Collectibles and Incense Cones

With great care, Seiffener Volkskunst pays homage to traditional figures and professions in Erzgebirge folk art, evoking a longing for a slower-paced life and an almost bygone era that is still kept alive in the toy village of Seiffen in the Ore Mountain region. The "Take it Easy" series continues to expand, delighting aficionados and collectors of the original smoker figurines.

The diverse fragrance cones from the brands Knox, Huss, and Bockauer make the Seiffen smokers enticing for everyone, whether you prefer the traditional Christmas fragrances, fruity or herbal scents or modern creations such as African Nights.

About Seiffener Volkskunst Cooperative

Established in 1959, the cooperative was initially composed of thirteen craftsmen from the Erzgebirge region. Today, the Seiffener Volkskunst Cooperative is one of the most successful manufacturers of Erzgebirge folk art. The intricate production processes can be observed in the show workshop in Seiffen. The range includes traditional Christmas decorations like nutcrackers, pyramids, smoking men, and chip trees.

Seiffener Volkskunst is always looking to create new designs, so many different series of figures have been invented throughout the years. Besides the "Take it easy" guys, SVK also distributes the "Tall guys", the whimsical "Cool man" figures and ball-shaped smokers from the "Clever from the Erzgebirge" collection. The products of this renowned cooperative have received countless design awards.
