Shaffer Vader created so much character and drama in his porcelain figurines. The little boy in this figurine is standing in front of a fence with his finger in his mouth, googly eyed and in awe at the back of the little girl sitting on the other side of the fence who, unaware of the situation, seems to have "An Unexpected Opening" in a very strategic place. Her black cat is seated beside her. It is a two-sided piece with an opening at the top of the nearby stump for whatever one would choose to place in it. This is quite a conversation piece and a perfect addition to the Shaffer Vader collection. Origin: Germany, circa: early 1900's.
