      Well! Ain't he the cock o' the walk! He even has SHOES on! He needs to be placed where he's looking in a mirror! Too cute!

      It look like chinese in the gold mark to me. Does it say 'Kong"??

      Thanks for the comments & loves !

      Celiene thank you , the Vanity Bird does sit in a mirrored cabinet !!(-: It seemed most appropriate place for it .

      That cathedral mark on the bottom - someone should know that! It is clearly a church of some sort. But he is not wearing a cross of any sort.

      Yeah - maybe Russian Orthodox. He has a hat on - and what is in his left hand (wing)?

      It is Russian! It is Gzhel Porcelain. Made in and around the town of Gzhel.

      Celiene the bird is holding a hand mirror , that's why I gave it the Vanity Bird title ; because she is so vain admiring herself . I will research further and post any new information I find . Thanks again !
