A large, rare, antique and life-sized Rosebreasted Cockatoo Parrot figurine from ENS of Germany, hand painted to perfection in tones of pink, white and gray and so well detailed you'll almost think the bird is breathing. The sculpture stands an impressive 16.25 inches in height (the bird is 13 inches long from crest to tail) and is 6.25 by 5.5 inches at its base. The Cockatoo is in exceptional condition with no chips or cracks despite its advanced age, although I have noted some dark spots that are underneath the glaze in the bird's crest and a few more near its vent (see pic) which were present during manufacturing. The piece is signed with the artist's initials, FB, on the back of the base and has the ENS windmill mark pressed into the porcelain on the bottom along with the numbers 5120, 5 and SN3. There is also a hole on the underside of the base that was likely done to aid in firing. A spectacular figurine that you're not likely to see again, worthy of museums, castles, collections and you.
