Sammy, the rooster, is a NetsUKe Treasure Jest created by Master Carver Peter Calvesbert for Harmony Kingdom in 2000.
Harmony Kingdom not only produced box figurines for their Treasure Jest line, but also does solid figurines called NetsUKe, that are reminiscent of Japanese netsuke figurines. The UK is capitalized to stand for the United Kingdom. Unlike the Japanese netsukes which are usually made from ivory, the Harmony Kingdom NetsUKes are made of crushed marble and resin, then hand painted by cottage workers in England.
Sammy is model number TJNRO with an edition size of 7449. The figurine was issued for sale on 6/1/2000, and retired on 4/14/2003. It measures 1.25 x 2 x 2.5 inches.
This piece is in excellent condition and comes in its original box with the Harmony Kingdom pamphlet and place card. Hallmarks include the copyright symbol, Pc for the artist, a treble clef, and a double diamond. There is no mouse.
Sammy is noted in The Harmony Kingdom Reference Guide by Leanna Barron on p. 114.
