This large figurine of two perched birds, beak-to-beak, squabbling over some insignificant something or other (bug or worm, I bet) is fabulous!
Each bird is modelled true to life and in vivid colors in the finest porcelain. The spread wings is probably the singlemost important feature to collectors of Hutschenreuther (and Rosenthal) bird figurines. There is so much potential for damage, yet this spectacular example is flawless - no chips, cracks, repairs, etc.
Just as an aside, our box of birds flew the coop, or so it seemed ever since our pack out from our brick and mortar shop a couple of years ago. In our search for another item, and much to our joy and relief, it was unearthed! It felt great to be reunited with this bevy of wonderful collectibles by various makers including Royal Adderley, Rosenthal, Hutschenreuther, Crown Staffordshire, and others. And so now we are able, to finally present for sale this lovely figurine which will surely be a star in your display!
This double bird figurine measures approx. 9" x 8" x 7". It has the green Hutschenreuther hallmark as well as a paper label still attached. Ca. 1940s. We think the pink bellied bird is a bullfinch and the other a chaffinch.
