This figurine is one of the older, much harder to find pieces from the Rosenthal porcelain company in Germany. It is the model number 1161, by the artist who signed the piece "PROF KARNER". It has the full markings from the company as well as the Karner name and number. As for the piece itself, it is a magnificent penguin, handpainted in naturalistic shades of black, gray, white, with a tinge of light-to-darker blue. The penguin is posed with its wings out, as though with some attitude, making it all the more dramatic. It is a beautiful piece, about 6" tall, and in excellent, if not mint, condition, remarkable because it is about sixty years old!
