This is a beautiful quail in the style of Mexican Tonala pottery. It is in excellent condition with no chips, or cracks. Sits about 5" tall with 3 1/2" to 4" body.The brass has its natural patina and buyer can use discretion to keep it as is or shine it. It looks very nice as is. The quail appears to have been hand-painted. The pictures show some of the detailed folk art. This is a rare and very nice addition to any collection. Thanks for your interest.
