A vintage squirrel figurine I picked up at a thrift for a quarter! This guy is about 3" tall and seems to be made of some kind of ceramic. Great mottled matte glaze. I have him perched on a dried forest conk (a type of fungus that lives on wood) a friend gave to me, with a background of birch bark and some lichen. Reminds me of the Wade figurines but more rustic. German perhaps? I have seen old unpainted German figurines that look similar. My squirrel collection grows.....
