Austrian Terracotta by Anzengruber-Keramic
Unusual hand made terracotta musician - a rare piece by the Viennesse company of Anzengruber-Keramic. He measures 7 inches high (18cm) and is stamped under the foot Handmade in Austria Anzengruber, and still retains the original sticker to his leg. Leopold Anzengruber founded his company in Vienna in 1949, and I would date this piece around this time. Condition is good but with 2 small chips - one to the hem of his jacket and one to the grass under his knee. It has also probably had some previous restoration around his knee as there is a mark to the back but barely noticeable, hence £165
