“Menchelach”

These are cast iron sculptures “Menchelach”  which means little man in German and are actually shutter holders that grip the edge to prevent it from moving. Tour guides say that the wives could leave male “menchelach” to indicate that hubby is home and a female “menchelach” to indicate that she is at home alone.

Is your husband home?
