A request to our German-speaking members...

Can anyone tell me what the german title or description might be for the ornament in my avatar? This would have been made in Germany in the late 70s to maybe early 80s. It shows a woman coming in from the field with a load of firewood.

It isn't a smoker. It's an ornament from one of the Erzgebirge manufacturers.
