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.
