This is a beautiful pair of Majolica hand painted Pheasant from Italy by Ugo Zaccagnini in the Art Deco period. I believe they are both male because of the very long tails. These gallinaceous birds have sweeping tails and brilliant feathers. The most beautifully feathered of all the game birds, the Pheasant was brought here from China.
One of the Pheasant is a Golden and the other, Lady Amherst. They are both 23" long and 5" across at the widest point. The base is 5" x 8". The tail is 12" long. Each one weighs 5 pounds.
These game birds are a favorite with hunters and are usually roasted with all the trimmings. They are both in beautiful condition. The Lady Amherst has a tiny nick at the beak which is hardly seen, but felt. I have listed a close up picture. Both figurines are numbered Z 8782 and Z 8783, respectively and one trademarked Italy.
They will be professionally packed and shipped.
