Northern European Chicken and Egg

red-dot

A fine and unusual Northern European (probably Brussels) pottery model of a startled hen laying. The animated bird standing alert and looking to on side with red comb and wattles on his yellow plumbed head. Raised up on an oval irreguar moulded stand having just laid an egg which is applied to the reverse of the base.The bird’s plumage beautifully picked out in tones of brown, puce and yellow.

Attribution to Brussels is most likely with the shiny appearance of the grand and petit feu colours used.
