Presenting an absolutely adorable figural pixie shaped money box.

This fabulous elfish pixie has the most charming, cheeky
expression and fantastic large, pointed ears. His sweet skin toned
face has been beautifully hand decorated with a charming wide-eyed,
long lashed expression and big cheeky smile. This delightful pixie is captured
in a seated pose, with one hand raised in a "Thumbs-up" gesture.

The pixie wears a costume which has been finished in a lovely pearl
lustre glaze, which glistens with gorgeous rainbow shades which appear
to change as light dances over its surface. A large pixie hat and pointed
pixie shoes finished in a bright red cold painted glaze completes the piece.

A coin slot to the reverse side of the pixie's hat indicates this
hollow form piece was originally designed to functional as a money
box. The original black rubber stopper remains in place to the base.

We can find no makers marks to help with the identification of
the maker, but the style of this piece is extremely similar to pieces
produced by Holt Howard in the 1950s, and may well be a Holt Howard
piece. Even the nature of the glazes used on the Pixies face is convincingly
similar to the glaze used on Pixieware pieces. Either way, this superb,
authentically vintage piece would make a fine addition to any Pixie collection!

This exquisite pixie is presented in very good vintage condition with no chips,
cracks or repairs. There are a few spots of wear to the pixies hand painted facial
features and red hat and shoes as indicated in the images. There is fine overall
crazing as is to be expected with a piece of this vintage but mentioned for complete
accuracy. This piece has been very well cared for and presents very well.

This impressive piece stands approx 180mms tall,
measures 120mms in width and 90mms in depth.

This exquisite piece would make an outstanding
addition to any vintage Pixie collection!

A wonderfully charming kitsch feature for any retro styled home

A perfect gift idea for any discerning admirer of beautifully
designed, fun vintage objects of sheer charm and beauty
