Bock-Wallendorf Playing Catch Figurine

This is a figurine made by Bock Wallendorf around in about 1930. They copied many different makers and did it fairly well. This figurine is based on the Hoechst example I have on the site of a boy and a girl playing catch. While there is some talk that they did have some of the original Hoechst molds this piece is obviously not one of them as it is just loosely based on the original. It is very nice for comparison purposes that I have the original Hoechst piece, a Samson copy and now this Bock Wallendorf copy on the site. That should help you all learn to see the differences a bit better. People often spend good money thinking they are truly 18th century Hoechst but one can tell them apart quite easily if original and copy are side by side. This figurine is of a boy and girl playing catch. A nicely modelled and painted piece. The figure is 5.125 inches tall, 3.875 inches wide and 2.375 inches deep. It is in perfect condition. The figure is marked underneath with an underglaze blue wheel mark with the crown on top. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
