This is a gorgeous vintage bird figurine hand-painted in a shiny golden-copper color with brown shading. It is made by Holland Mold ceramics, and I haven't seen another like it with its brilliant finish. It was hand-signed by "Carla 2-67", who I'm assuming was responsible for the wonderful finish and shading.
It would dress up any bookshelf, side table or window sill, and it would bring something to any style of decor--from antique to modern.
Figurine is a good size at 7 3/8" tall, 7 3/4" wide, and 4 1/2" deep. It is in excellent condition. There were a couple minor chips to the tail that have been covered over--I really had to inspect closely to find them.
Is it a quail, partridge, or grouse? Oh, I don't know, they're all so similar. I'll leave it to you experts.
Thank you for your interest!
