About

A man in a long dress wrapped like a spiral spring and a pointed hat hugs the animal with an excessively long neck standing next to him, with the horns and hat wedged together. Painted in typical Art Deco style, in yellow, green and red, on a flat, round base. Manufactory: Augarten Vienna / Austria Made circa 1925-1938 White porcelain, painted, glossy finish Designed by Walter Bosse (1904 - 1979), Austrian ceramic artist and designer, known for his ceramic figures, which stood out for their humorous note, some designs also for the Goldscheider manufactory and other ceramic manufacturers, design of numerous animal figures, which were also implemented in brass and bronze. In the 1950s to 1970s, Bosses figures were offered on a broadband basis, but they were also forged worldwide. Bosse tried to market his designs himself and to receive license fees for it and had to go to court for this through a grueling court case, so he is considered the founder of modern copyright law for designer goods and handicrafts.
