This cute little Irish figure depicts a leprechaun sitting on a mushroom guarding a pot of gold near his pointed feet. Produced by Belleek of Ireland circa 1965 to 1980, based on the green marking on the underside (6th series mark, third green mark). Glossy finish with yellow lustre applied to his collar, coins, shoe buckles, and the foliage on the base. Faintly inscribed on the base is "For Luck" on the front and "Irish Leprechaun" on the rear. He has a great vintage look, rather more like an elf than what we North Americans traditionally think of as a leprechaun. He measures 4 3/4" tall, and about 3" across at the widest point. Perfect condition. Mischievous!
