German Porcelain Figurine of European Roller Bird
Our lovely, large figurine is believed to depict a European roller, a relatively rare member of the roller family native to Europe, and extending to Morocco to the west and south, and the Middle East and Central Asia to the east. It measures 15.5 by 8.5 by 4.5 inches and is in good condition. With impressed mark "Germany" and Capodimonte style crown and capital "N" under glaze, and attributed to Sandizell, Höffner & Co.
There is a loss to one leaf as seen in our closeup, and may have other very small losses.
