    A tough boy!

    Bought on eBay USA, very affordable until I realise there was global shipping costs with custom fee included... a shame as items under 150€ are exonerated of custom fees...

    But I'm very pleased though he joins the Vienna bronze animals hoard :-))

    12cm (4.3/4") long.
    6.5cm (2.5") high

    Faintly marked under belly "geschutz" (aka registered).

    The bristles are gently worn, and he was well loved!
    My only kyratisation was a gentle clean of the bronze part followed by a little rub with a shoe polish brush.

      Wow Pascale, he is a tough one for sure! So great though to add to your collection. Don't think I would like that huge one as much:-)
    5. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
      You sure find the most unusual items :-) He is a angry looking guy but very cool . To bad about the fee's I don't understand why countries collect custom fee's and who get's the money ? xo
    6. antiquerose antiquerose, 2 years ago
      He sure....Grunt to you for finding him !! Oink
      Way to go...he got the perfect home now !!
    7. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 2 years ago
      Yeah a lot of them turn up in america. I see lots on some of the german auctions I shop at in germany. Can find some wonderful ones and this one is a true beauty. Congrats on getting this !~

      Oh la la! So much kind comments on tough boy!

      Grunt grunt gruunt oinkkk oink, he said... I translate:

      Judy! he is very pleased here, and wouldnt like to cross the path of the huge other one ;-))

      Mani! special grunt to you, he is very glad you find him cool :-) (for the fees... I think they pay nothing and keep them, at least for the exonerate pieces!)

      Rose, thankful grunts and oinks back to you (he said too he loves your Canadian accent!)

      Phil! He said he saw his German brothers too, but they are much more expensive ;-)

      Karen! grunt too to say you are delightful (hopefully not as a snack!!!)

      Scott! He says he is not a piiiggyyy.... a Boar, a TOUGH BOARRRR! ;-)))

      Thank you all for visiting and leave kind grunts here!

      Many thanks to all of you, 23 wildness lovers!

      Wow! I would be frightened to stick my nib anywhere near this angry-looking character.
    14. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
      Thanks Gary! A sweet day for you too :-))

      Vintagelamp, he maybe seems frightening, but in fact very sweet boy!
      Thank you :-)
