The Mystery

What are the names of these children? What is the large cone?

I'm pretty sure that that cone is a "schultüte". German children usually get one when they start going to school.

I agree with Ana. It believe that this cone was part of an early tradition. 'School Cones' were often given to children on their first day of school, and were used to fill with presents and candy. Popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
