From the factory of P.& E. PECH (Decorator's mark-Germany) 1945 to the present.This I believe is from the early 50's and is the figure of a sailor sitting on a barrel, cross-legged, playing the accordian and singing.On his cap he has the name of the liner "PRETORIA CASTLE" This ship had been built as an ocean liner in 1938 and requisitioned by the merchant navy in 1939 and converted to an armed merchant cruiser, serving mainly in the South Atlantic. She was sold back to the Union-Castle-Line in 1946 and converted back to a passenger liner renamed the "WARWICK CASTLE" operating on routes from England to South Africa. The sailor is hand-painted and in nice condition, the only blemish I can see is the letter E on his cap at the end of CASTLE. He measures approx 6 1/2" and is marked on the base. . This will be shipped 1st class registered mail. Please Feel Free to Email me With any Questions and Thank You for visiting.
