Vintage porcelain figurine of a red cardinal perching on a branch with wings outspread. Interesting action pose.

Handpainted bisque finish.
UCTCI Japan.
Measures 5-3/4" tall, 5-1/2" across the widest part, 3-1/4" between wing tips, and the base is 3" x 3-1/2".

The original gold foil label is intact on the base, along with furniture protector pads of a thin, velvety type material. A hand-printed note written on the base reads "To Dorothy From Alma 6/19/78".

Excellent condition! The only imperfection I can find is a small spot on the lower foot where the 1st claw isn't painted. It doesn't seem to be chipped, the spot just didn't get painted. (The spot is visible in one of the pictures, which I purposely took looking up from beneath the piece, as it isn't so obvious from other angles).

UCTCI is (was?) a giftware company that in the 1960's and 70's (possibly into the 80"s) marketed a moderately priced line of realistically-rendered porcelain animal figurines with bisque finishes, which were often sold in museum and zoo gift shops.

Shipping in the US includes insurance. Cost ranges from $7.29 to $10.82 depending on destination. Contact me prior to purchase and I will amend and reserve the listing for you, or I'll reimburse overcharges through PayPal.

I'm always glad to combing items for the best shipping rate! Please see Shop Policies for more info: https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/4oldtimesandnew/policies
