A pair of very detailed molded porcelain figures of standing pigeons. The glaze is slightly blue/green. On close examination it is clear that though they were made from the same mold, the details of the lines in the feathers, breasts and the bases were done by hand. A slight tint of orange shows through thin spots in the glaze on the bases. They are an identical pair rather than an opposing pair. Height 6 7/8 Inches (17.5 cm), length 6 5/8 inches (17 cm), width 3 inches (7.5 cm).
Condition: generally good with no repairs or serious cracks. There are minor chips on the tails of both and one has a chip to the pointed beak. A fair number of firing flaws and inclusions in the glaze are present.
Good details and the excellent color make these attractive birds.
