You don't know this fairy tale? It's been written by Andersen. Two china figurines, one of a cute sheperdess and one of a pretty chimney sweep are "living" on a mantelpiece; they're separated by a "magot", another china statue of an old grumpy Chinese who's infatuated with the sheperdess and wants to marry her. Of course the sheperdess and the chimney sweep are in love. I don't remember details but the sweep uses his ladder to take the sheperdess on the roof, where they wonders at the stars... In the end, the "magot" falls and breaks to pieces, and the sheperdess marries the sweep :o)

This version looks genuine so either my memory is bad, or the translation I read as a child was not that correct!
