Cock-A-Doodle-Doo! This comic nodder of two amorous chickens is by the German firm of Schafer and Vater. Of excellent sharp bisque, this naughty novelty features a randy rooster mounting a hot-to-trot hen. When gently tapped, the chickens rock back and forth suggestively. The modeling is excellent, from the prurient poultry's goggle-eyed expressions to their detailed feathers. The base of green precolored bisque forms a small pin or trinket dish. The front of the dish is stamped "Grenoble" in dark green, and this bawdy bisque was no doubt a souvenir from this French town. These cheeky chickens are 3 inches tall and 2.75 inches wide. There are no breaks or repairs, There are some tiny scattered dots of black paint on the hen's right side that look like they fell from the decorator's brush.
