Four Generations

In 1898 Albert Schild opened his special shop of wood carvings at Bahnhofstrasse 19 in Interlaken, Bernese Oberland. He sold his own exclusive wood carvings and also those made in
nearby Brienz.

At the end of 1920 his son Ernst joined the firm – he extended the selection of articles also including personally designed wooden toys.
These articles were subsequently sold all over Switzerland. Today, the popular handpainted wooden red cow with its leather ears is still a favourite.

In 1973, his nephew Walter Andreas Fuchs took over the firm. Besides the wood carvings and wooden toys Swiss made souvenirs were included.
