Quite amazing vintage miniature animal figurals are fashioned, I think, from plaster of Paris applied to a wire armature, and then painted in bright colors. They are delicate and expressive interpretations, and will captivate you with their charms. They are being sold in sets of 5; there are a total of two groups left in my shop (both groups on the left are sold; see last picture for a group shot). Some have tiny cracks, chips, or losses (mostly at the legs), but all stand beautifully and are tiny works of folk art. Terrific for a shadow box collection, diorama, doll house, zoo collection, mini collection, altered art, etc. There are no markings, but they have the look of handmade items from India, c. 1970’s.

SIZE: for comparison, the Wildebeest is approx. 7/8”W x 5/8”H

GROUP 4: this group of five includes
• Wildebeest (tiny loss on one leg)
• Giraffe (alas, he has a loss on his front leg, and a crack on the back leg)
• Zebra
• Goat
• Donkey (tiny crack on rear leg)

Comment from customer who bought the set on the lower left: "Wow, those tiny creatures are absolutely wonderful, I can't believe my eyes: they are so delicately detailed… Thanks a lot!"

Each group of five will be sent double boxed to insure safe arrival to your front door. Each animal will be in its own little zip lock bag in a little box, and the whole group will be cushioned with bio-degradable packing peanuts to protect from shock. Please be sure to view the other group available (both sets on the left have been sold).
