Karl Ens Palm Cockatoo*
Pre-WW2 porcelain figure of a Palm Cockatoo from Karl Ens of Volkstedt, Germany. Typical superb quality from this top maker.
Seated on a naturalistic white-glazed branch, this fine looking bird is turning its head to one side and has that slightly quizzical expression that lovers of all parrots will recognise so well.
With beautiful bluey-grey feathering, the tail feathers shading somewhat darker, and sporting a most impressive comb on top of its head. The pink and white facial detail and strong eye colouring give further impact to the overall look of this striking bird.
These older Ens figures are now quite sought after and this example is in excellent condiotion, having been well looked after.
Standing approximately 28 cm high, with the green windmill mark clearly shown on the underside, confirming that it was made prior to 1940.
