Once upon a time…….
Long, long ago the pewter manufacture Wilhelm Schweizer designed an opulent pewter miniature which was called the Fairytale Castle. The marvellous elaboration was giving each single figure an expressiveness you would have to search for far and wide. You would not find anything comparable beautiful!
