This appears to be from the late 50's or early 60 Poodles are in great shape. I do not now the difference between pottery and chalkware. Electical cord is old and cracked. Recommend not plugging it in until replaced. I do not see any chips or scratches in the poodles themselves. I will package it very well. However, I do recommend insurance at your cost to protect yourself. We can work out the details and cost after the auction is completed.
