Pair Of German Plaster Hand Painted Metal Legs Figurine Turkeys Circa 1910
A Pair Of Nearly Identical Hand Painted Turkeys That Give That Look Of Age And Whimsy. The Turkeys Are From A Mold But Then Hand Painted. The Heads Are Painted In Blue With Red Wattles And Black Eyes. The Tails Have Bands Of Off White And Red. The Bodies Have A Gilt Painting That Shines. The Feet Are Painted Red Orange. They Have Metal Legs And Feet And Are Mounted Standing On Cardboard Discs. One Turkey Has The Word Germany Printed On The Cardboard Underside. The Other Disc Underside May Have Had The Word Taken Off By Tape. The Turkeys Are Identical, So Both Must Have Also Had The Country Printed On It. MEASUREMENTS Each Figure Stands 3 1/8” (7.9 Cm) Tall X 2 1/8” (5.4 Cm) Wide X 1 ¾” (4.4 Cm) Deep. Total Weight 3 Oz (80 G) CONDITION Some Of The Paint Has Come Off The Legs And Feet. One Turkey Is Missing A Few Bits Of Paint On The Tail And One Turkey Has A Chip Or Manufacture Flaw On The Tail Edge But Is Still Black Like The Edge. The Cardboard Disc On One Is Bent And It Appears As Though A Piece Of Tape Was Removed. This Probably Had A Stamp With The Word “Germany” Like The Other Figure Still Has. They Are Both In Very Good Shape For The Age And Delicacy. Here Are Turkeys For Your Curio Cabinet Or Your Next Thanksgiving Dinner. Small Works Of Vintage (or Even Antique – 100 Years Old – At This Point) Art That Show Off Well. Item: V-1255 Model – WHe4dc0ce93b0b43bd
Country/region Of Manufacture – Germany
