This antique ceramic wall pocket shows a pretty yellow red and blue bird sitting on a tree branch next to its nest. Stamped “Made in Slovakia-Czecho” on the bottom with #54 printed and#40 engraved also on the bottom. Judging by the hyphenated name it has been speculated that this particular figurine dates from 1918 to 1938.
It measures 5 inches tall by 4-1/2inches wide. Good condition except the bird has the end of his tail missing! Valued at $20-25, we offer our wall pocket for only $10.00!
