A fabulous figurine of pair of Parakeets or Budgies, crafted by Cortendorf of Germany between 1952 and 1960 (the company was later taken over by Goebel in 1963). Uncharacteristically hand painted in shades of off-white, grey and blue the porcelain pair remind one of offerings by the denizens of Denmark (Royal Copenhagen, Bing and Grondahl) or perhaps the citizens of Spain (Lladro, Porceval). The birds are life-sized, standing 7 3/8 inches in height and 4.5 inches from wing to wing, and have nice detail. They are in excellent condition and still retain their original Cortendorf foil label on the base and are also marked on the bottom. The perfect pair to bring a bit of lightness to both your china cabinet and heart.
