Snow Owl Figurine

This is a really nice figurine of a snow owl made by Meissen in the late 19th or early 20th century. I think this type of owl has many names - snow owl / polar owl / arctic owl / white owl but either way is is a really nice figurine decorated in their rare under glaze colors from around 1900. It was designed by Hermann Fritz but I am not sure of the exact date this was first modeled. It is very well modeled with lots of details and hand painted perfectly. The owl is sitting on a green rock with an interesting Art Nouveau / Jugendstil design to sides. N The figure is in perfect condition! It is marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark (first choice) as well as the model number, a painter's mark and another incised number as shown. The piece is 5.25 inches tall, 1.625 inches wide and 2.75 inches long. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $1249
