      Unique and cool piece . I wonder what it represents .
    2. VioletOrange VioletOrange, 5 years ago
      Thanks Marty, I know that Liebermann designed a number of similar pieces for Rosenthal, e.g. child riding a turtle, girl riding a bird, woman riding an ostrich, child with a penguin, "faun" with a crocodile, man reading to a bird.

      Liebermann was a sculptor who worked in various media, e.g. he made a bronze of Adolf Hitler's niece that Hitler had reproduced for various of his residences.

      I have seen this before, and always hated it because I do not own it. You have some very beautiful pieces I envy ! I never realized the base is so large.
    8. VioletOrange VioletOrange, 5 years ago
      I hate you too Phil - LOL

      So little of this kind of stuff came around in this area. Must have been wonderful to see the shop windows in old Germany or France.

      I had a lieberman once, cannot remember too well, they said it was rare but that was in the nineties - it had a bear and maybe a drum ?

      Perfect name! 'Capriccio' means a painting or other work of art representing a fantasy or a mixture of real and imaginary features!
    12. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 4 years ago
      capriccio actually means more like something beautiful and somewhat unpredictable - which doesn't follow the rules, as are commonly understood. it is also used to describe paintings of views which don't really exist.

      Appreciate your comments, Celiene
