Antique German Snow Baby Holds A Ball Over Seal's Head 10.41b For Sale
This is a sweet snow baby pose that was made in several variations. This one is by far the most detailed and carefully made. It is a Hertwig piece and it measures just about 2".It isn't clear if the baby is teaching the seal to balance the ball or trying to take the ball from the seal, and perhaps the designer didn't know either.
This example, as you can see, has very good paint. I don't see any problems with it except for a couple of very tiny rubs on the seal's back.
I guarantee the return of your purchase price if you are dissatisfied. Please ask any questions before you offer. I will combine purchases for shipping, but if you plan to offer on more than one piece, please email me and do not pay until you until you want me to mail pieces.
