Auguste Müller

Auguste Müller (1847 in Seiffen – 1930) was a German folk carver, who was involved in Seiffen's traditional wooden toymaking. Her works made from waste wood are now counted among the most valuable pieces of Ore Mountain folk art.[1] She followed in her father's footsteps as a toymaker.[2] Müller was noted for her use of metaphor in her carvings, which she made with a particular sensitivity. The Erzgebirgisches Spielzeugmuseum in Seiffen is in possession of some of her works such as the religious "Weihnachtstempel", which she made in 1918.[1]
