In the story; a donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster, all past their prime years in life and usefulness on their respective farms, were soon to be discarded or mistreated by their masters. One by one they leave their homes and set out together. They decide to go to Bremen, known for its freedom, to live without owners and become musicians there.
On the way to Bremen, they see a lighted cottage; they look inside and see four robbers enjoying their ill-gotten gains. Standing on each others backs, they decide to perform for the men in hope of gaining food. Their 'music' has an unanticipated effect; the men run for their lives, not knowing what the strange sound is. The animals take possession of the house, eat a good meal, and settle in for the evening.
Later that night, the robbers return and send one of their members in to investigate. It is dark and he sees the eyes of the Cat shining in the darkness. He reaches over to light his candle, thinking he sees the coals of the fire. Things happen in quick succession; the Cat swipes his face with her claws, the Donkey picks up his hooves and kicks him, the Dog bites him on the leg and the Rooster crows and chases him out the door, screaming.
He tells his companions that he was beset by a horrible witch who scratched him with her long fingers (the Cat), an ogre with a knife (the Dog), a giant who had hit him with his club (the Donkey), and worst of all, the dragon who screamed in his voice from the rooftop (the Rooster). The robbers abandon the cottage to the strange creatures who have taken it, where the animals live happily for the rest of their days.
The Musicians of Bremen is a fairytale recorded by the Brothers Grimm
The unparalleled Wilhelm Schweizer of Bayern hand painted pewter!
Known as Zinn in Germany, these pewter ornaments, whether standing or hanging pewter, are truly heirlooms in the making. Hand made and hand painted by the talented artisans of Schweizer Pewter of Germany, they are made today precisely the same way they were made hundreds of years ago. And in the same place! In the little Bavarian village of Diessen am Ammersee.
The standing and hanging ornaments are hand painted on both sides. The window and wall hangings are painted on one side.
Please note that since these are all hand painted, the same mold may appear different from the ones we show. That's the charm of Schweizer! Begin your family tradition now, future generations will thank you.
