Size: This figurine is ~3 3/4" high and the base is ~2 3/8" by~1 3/8". The piece weighs almost 7.5 ounces.

Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a rather nice decorative piece. A definite beauty deserving of a prominent spot in any redware collection mad in the studios of a master potter with the Pennsylvania Dutch heritage who died in 2011.
Condition: The piece is in very good condition. It has no cracks, hairlines, chips, or repairs. It does have general crazing to the glaze throughout. The piece has some of the usual defects that you would expect to find in a primitive piece of pottery such as pops, slubs, uneven areas, some roughness to the surface, and areas where the glaze did not fully flow. These are minimal and do not affect the quality or beauty of the piece. Please see photos to appreciate its beauty and for additional condition information.
