Captured in a pose that’s sure to charm, this European Crested Tit figurine by Rosenthal of Germany is both life-sized and lovely. Made of porcelain and finished in a shiny glaze, the bird is exquisitely hand painted with lots of nice detail. It was created by the artist Fritz Heidenreich who worked for the company from 1919 to 1960 and his mark is impressed along the base. The bird measures 3 5/8 inches in length from wing to crest, 2 5/8 inches wide at the base and is 5.5 inches tall. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs and is marked Haubenmeise, 1647, Rosenthal, Germany, Kunstabteilung, Selb, Handgemalt on the bottom, a mark that dates it to 1948.
