Description

A sweet pair of vintage mice collected during my twenty years in Australia. The gentleman could be bowing and asking the lady to dance or he could be proposing marriage to a slightly surprised lady.


The figurine is 2.5 inches tall by 2 inches at the base, with beautiful soft colors and a shiny glazed finish. The condition is excellent vintage with no chips.

This couple would be lovely as a wedding or engagement cake topper
or a gift for a newly engaged couple.

I started collecting these mice, bunny and squirrel figurines when I found them at car boot (trunk) sales held on cricket playing fields in Adelaide, South Australia. The boot sales were also called Trash and Treasure and of course, I always found treasure.

This pair is one of five I am offering in my store. Four mice couples and one bunny couple. The outdoor photo shows all five couples and highlights the beautiful colors of the figurines.

Since the only maker's mark on the bottom is a number, it was a fun challenge to collect them.

If you select more than one couple, I will combine shipping.

A word about my pricing. Before listing an item, I research comparables and list the item at least 25% less than similar items.
One of the reasons I opened my shop was to find new homes
for the treasures I found in Australia and the USA.

Now that I have returned home to the US, I am opening my "ozseaglass" Etsy shop to share the vintage items I collected in Australia and the gorgeous sea glass and sea shells found on the beaches of South Australia.
