Vtg Goebel Painted Bird Ceramic Candlestick Taper Candle Holder Made In Germany:
Very pretty candlestick holder by Goebel, Germany. I think the bird on it is a bluebird. This candlestick holder is meant to hold a thin tapered candle (not included) and is only about 2" tall and 1 5/8" in diameter. It feels very heavy for its size. (I believe there must be a piece of lead encased within the ceramic, in the base.) The same picture of the bird appears on both sides.
It is in very good condition, with no visible flaws to speak of aside from a small splotch of missing paint on the bird's back on one of the two sides.
While ever so faint, the middle of the bottom has--or had, before I washed it (oops!)--a picture of a crown followed by "MADE IN" on one line and "W. GERMANY" on the next line, all in capital letters and all in a bluish-purple ink.
