Tiny Bisque Tennis Playing Snow Baby
One doesn't think of tennis as a winter sport, but this itty-bitty snow baby clutching his tennis racket appears to be asking, "Tennis anyone?" Perhaps he plays using snowballs. Just 1 5/8 inches high, this tiny tot is of bisque and wears a snowsuit textured with bits of ground bisque, called "snow." His cold-painted features are worn, but his cute, chubby face is well-modeled. There are no chips or breaks, but as it typical of these snowbaby novelties, there are tiny scattered bare patches where the "snow" failed to adhere or has worn off.
