description
  An A B S O L U T E rareness! Handmade and specially designed and made for PTT (or Posterijen) Holland. PTT stands for Postal, Telegram and Telephone company. The metal wire figure represents a mailman. The black head is made out of wood. The red hat and "nose" (?) are made of steel. This design and its colors are strongly influenced by "de Stijl" and the "Bauhaus" movements. Charactaristic of both styles is there soberness and simplicity. The wooden base has two cutouts in which you can put (lay) you pen or pencils. The figures body is made out of stainless steel wire. Thickness: 4 mm. Total height: 25,5 cm. Year: 1930. Origin: Dutch. For now we attributed this item to: Piet Zwart (in research).
