Talk about happy feet, this little guy has them, and is just plain happy no matter what angle you see him from. He has personality plus.

Say Yes to Vintage Pottery!

This Art Deco era penguin figurine looks like he is ready for a night on the town, maybe to the Rainbow Room or some high flatutin' flat that Lady Medel designed. If you love penguins, this is the find for you!

The formally attired friend is Metlox and said to be part of the Poppytrail line, but it may be one of the "Metlox Miniatures" by Carl Romanelli, who designed some of the most highly sought Metlox dinnerware patterns in the late 1930s and early ‘40s, and also sculpted small animal figurines. Probably including our feathered friend.

There's no maker's mark anywhere, so the fellow's native habitat remains incognito. But we know where he will soon be migrating... Your house!

He stands 3 1/4 inches high. And will win your heart.

The last photo shows this item with several others that can be bought elsewhere in our shop. This price is for this item only.

The shipping price reflects the actual cost of packing and shipping of this fragile treasure.

Shipping prices are for USA buyers, shipped via Priority Mail.

Please do not ask me to discount shipping costs. I will not do that.

Sadly, I have learned the hard way that less expensive shipping options lead to broken pottery. I guard against that by packing the items beautifully and sending them via USPS Priority Mail. Even so, I usually lose about a dollar per item in the shipping costs, by doing this. So, much as I might want to do so, I cannot reduce the shipping price with any sense of confidence that the item will get to you as it should.

Frequently asked questions about delovelyness

Vintage Watches take special care. They must be hand-wound everyday. They should be treated gently, kept away from water, and serviced by a professional watchmaker every 3-5 years. They should not be expected to be as large as or keep time as accurately as modern battery watches. I do have some vintage battery watches in the collection if you prefer that ease of ownership. Please take time to read all the information in the listing before you buy. A detailed set of instructions will be sent with your manual wind vintage watch.
I do not gift wrap. I do pack items securely and well. I will include a brief note that the item is a gift, if you ask. When you select a delovelyness collection item to be sent as a gift, the packaging will not divulge the price you have paid. It will include a small tasteful business card that states it came from the delovelyness collection.
