This charming figurine by Royal Doulton is their HN2976, entitled "I'm Nearly Ready", issued in 1983. It measures 7 1/2" tall on a round base that's 3 1/2" across. The detail is exceptional on this young violinist who is tuning his instrument before performing. Note the sheet music at his feet and the realistic work on the violin; although difficult to see in our lo-res pix, his face has the precision and careful detail found on virtually all Doulton figures.

Condition is excellent -- no chips, cracks, breaks, nicks, flakes, stains or other damage / problems.

Please expect, however, that items of this sort will often contain minor manufacturing flaws (glaze irregularities on pottery, straw marks / air bubbles on glass, etc.), as well as small signs of normal wear and tear (faint surface scratches, etc., especially on silver).
