This old bird figure is quite attractive but I haven’t been able to identify the species. It is beautifully detailed and is glazed in tones of green and blue with an open yellow beak. The bird is perched on a gnarled branch with leaves and incised on the base in block letters is the name Bochmann. On the bottom is a greenish brown mark of a crown. Beneath the crown, although hard to make out, it appears to read; alka Kunst Bavaria - Made in Western Germany. This mark indicates this was made between 1938 and 1956. It is also impressed with the number 318. All color and the stamped marks are under glaze.
It measures about 7 7/8” tall and is in very nice condition with minimal wear and no damage.
