This Artesania Rinconada "Ostrich" has a very intricate hand carved design with shiny glazes accented with metallic glazes of gold & platinum, from the Silver Anniversary series. There were two versions of this ostrich; this one is the glossy version, and it was available for only one year before it was retired.
Since each Rinconada figure is all hand crafted, there are some individual differences from piece to piece. No two pieces are exactly alike!
The bottom features a logo stamp for Rinconada, along with pads to protect the furniture surface. Artesania Rinconada figures are made in Uruguay & designed by twin brothers, Jesus & Javier Cabajales, along with designer Jorge De Rosa. Each Artesania Rinconada figurine is carefully hand-carved & detailed in fine grain earthenware ceramic material. After the initial kiln firing, decoration continues with the hand application of colored slips & enamel glazes used to accent & highlight.
The Artesania Rinconada figures are highly collected, and this ostrich is listed in the "Rinconada Collector's Handbook and Guide", 2nd Edition, published by The Good Life. The ostrich #700 is retired.
This Silver Anniversary Series "Ostrich" comes to you new and in mint condition, from the inventory of a closed store. It will come in the original AR box, which is in good condition. As a piece of art, a hand crafted figure from Artesania Rinconada is superior.
