PostSubject: Made in China bull?   Wed Jun 12, 2013 11:24 pm

Here's an unmarked bisque bull, perhaps meant to be Charolais, purchased in the UK, who's been puzzling me for ages. He looks unmistakably like a Doris Lindner (Royal Worcester) piece to me (down to the felt-lined, removable plinth he stands on - also unmarked), but I've never been able to find a single cattle model issued by the company who matches this sculpt. So, I put it to you - who do we have here? A test run? A prototype that never made it into production? A really very nice copy?

More pictures of him can be found here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Doesn't he just? Very Happy I think so too - and appreciate your co-appreciation! (In English: thank you for your kind comment!)

Fantastic figure. I'm sorry I can't share any details on him, but he is a handsome fellow.

Curiously, before reading your post and while watching your picture, I was contemplating the detail and good looking of the figure and immediatly thought it would be a charolais. pig So, we are thinking alike. However, I must say that I don't understand anything of cattle and we have on forum people very good with it. So, maybe you'll find the right answer if it is possible! Very Happy

Well, we may never know who he is, but at least I know he's well liked. :)

Roger: Charolais was my first thought too when I unpacked him for the first time - and the banged (cut-even), bushy tail-tip would point that way too. Hopefully I'll know for certain some day.
