Offering a classic piece of mid century artistry. A stacking set of metal Hedgehogs nest together tightly. Each piece has eyes and a nose, even the baby on the top!

Stamped into each one is Made in Italy.

In excellent structural condition. The brass metal has developed a rich patina from never being polished.

This iconic design was created by Walter Bosse. Walter Bosse was born 1904 in Vienna and died 1979 in Iserlohn Germany

Between 1926 & 1930 he designed for Metzler & Ortloff Porzellenfabrik in Ilmenau. He designed over 200 animal figures some considered grotesque, but retain a certain charm. Also between 1928 & 1932 he designed similar pieces for Goldschieder of Vienna. Other companies he designed for were Geobel in the 1940s, and Karlsruher Majolika between 1950 to 1972, designing 245 animals.

He also designed for Hagenauer of Vienna in the 1950s who made stylised Metalware. This piece was created while Walter was in the employ of Hagenauer.

Measures approximately 4 1/2 inches long x 3 inches high x 3 inches wide when all stacked up. Quite an eye catching display when all the hedgehogs are spread out.

Guaranteed vintage & authentic. Satisfaction guaranteed.
