Description

I wasn't sure whether to put this in the collectibles or porcelain category. It seems to fit in both. This peacock is about 4 3/4" tall and about 9" long. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. It is in shades of blue and green. Very lovely.... On the bottom is: Rosenthale Germany Kunstabteilung Selb Handgemalt Germany US Zone 978 (in the porcelain--not printed)

Provenance

This was in my mom's estate. She passed away in Feb. We are not sure where she got it. She loved to go to Estate Sales and Antique Stores. My uncle was just like her and he left all of his estate to her. We are trying to pull items that might have more value than the rest of the house to get an appraisal idea.

$200 - $300 (United States Dollar)

Thank you so much. I found one listed for $600 and I thought that sounded a bit much. This makes a lot more sense.
