I have a bad habit of buying things just because I like them. Often they don't even go with my décor. This was one of those cases. I bought this from a picker friend several years ago. I was just impressed with the detail and work it took to create this piece. I know it is not old. Maybe from the 60's?

A couple of months ago, I saw the exact same piece was being auctioned by a well known auction house. Their piece was of the same vintage as this one

It is 13 inches tall

    No, I don't usually check Bonhams. The base is different on this one. I think I saw it at Sothby's. (I wasn't sure if I was allowed to mention a specific name of a company on here at the time )
