Philip Rosenthal (1855-1937) began his business in 1884 by purchasing white-ware from Hutschenreuther and selling his designs by going door-to-door with the items which were hand painted by his wife, Marian. He established his first factory in 1891 and by the time of World War II, Rosenthal operated ten companies and employed over 500 people. To this day, the Rosenthal name is associated with quality porcelain items.
This wonderful Rosenthal porcelain figurine, circa 1930's - 1950's, was designed by Wilhelm Zugel in 1913. It portrays a drake and hen Mallard duck standing on a white oval base. The attention to detail and realistic colors in shades of tan, gray, cobalt blue, blue/green and white are exquisite. The base measures 6 1/2 in length and 3 1/2" in width; the total figurine is 8" in length and 6 1/2" in height. Stamped in green with the Crown mark and "Rosenthal - Selb Bavaria", used from 1934-1956; impressed with the pattern number "K341/1"; faintly stamped on the top of the base "W Zugel". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
