Antique, porcelain figurine featuring the hard to find, "pink paws" bear that was made in Germany. There is no mark, dating it earlier than 1903. Usually, these were made with pink pigs, but less often you can find bears, elephants, and cats. This adorable piece is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or repairs. It is 2 inches tall by 3 inches wide. Many of these figurines were exported to the United States, as well as other countries, and often sold at train stations, and other tourist destinations, as souvenirs often with the name of the town, or state. This one has written in gold leaf, "From Canada". They were also given away at local fairs, and thus the term, "Fairing". This one has no town designation.
I currently have other German, "fairing" animal figurines in my shop, including the whimsical pink pigs, and am happy to combine shipping. To see them all, type, "fairing" in the California Girls search box at the top of the page.
If you are ordering more than 1 item from my shop, wait to pay until I send back an invoice with the combined shipping discount.
