Phillip Rosenthal (1855-1937) began business in 1884 by purchasing white ware from Hutschenreuther and selling designs by going door to door, which were hand painted by his wife, Maria. He established his first production factory in 1891. By the time of World War II, Rosenthal operated ten companies and employed over five thousand people. To this day, the Rosenthal name is associated in quality porcelain items.
This lovely figurine, circa 1950's - 1960's, depicts a small girl knelling on the ground, surrounded by baby chicks. She is gently holding one of the chicks in her hands and appears to be giving the baby a tender kiss. The figure is white in color and measures 5" in height. The marking in green "Rosenthal - Germany" was first used in 1953 to present. The pattern mark "1640" is impressed. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Great detail and charm.
