A small niche of my German Erzgebirge collection substitutes rabbits for people in ordinary scenes from everyday life. It's hard to find and super-charming! The room box above is extremely rare. It is, of course, a school room with the teacher instructing the students on how to paint Easter eggs. Buckets of colorful paint are stacked on the shelf in the back of the room, while freshly painted eggs line another rack on the wall. There's even a real chalkboard behind the teacher!
This same vignette comes in a military theme with human soldiers around a campfire. This is a hard to find example of the same theme adapted for rabbits cooking their eggs and standing next to a canvas tent.
Erzgebirge vehicles are a favorite of mine. These two incorporate the Easter theme. Note the side panels of the vehicle on the right in the shape of ducks. Both carry Easter eggs.
