Sturdy vintage 12" tall Italian FIGURAL ROOSTER & HEN figurines of ceramic pottery in excellent condition and perched on decorative ornate bases in an antique copper gold color. These look very Italian in design and color.
These fine ROOSTER and HEN figurines are nicely shaped and sculpted with no damage to note - no chips, cracks or repairs. The body of the HEN does show age-related crazing, but this may have been the intended paint finish, as the crazing is only on the tan body color and a smaller amount of the crazing is also noted on the back of the ROOSTER.
Both ROOSTER and HEN figurines are primarily colored with tan light brown bodies, with teal blue gray tail feathers and burgundy red combs and waffles. Both are affixed to their bases, which are in an antique copper gold color. Unknown as to primary material if these are ceramic, pottery or resign, but we do know that they are not porcelain. Theses figurines are under a satin glaze.
The ROOSTER figurine measures 12" height, 9" from front to back and approximately 4.5" side to side. The ROOSTER figurine weighs 3 pounds 13 ounces. The HEN figurine measures 11" high, 8" front to back and is approximately 4.5" side to side. The figural HEN weighs 3 pounds 6.5 ounces. No makers mark on the ROOSTER or HEN figurine, nor on the bases.
