The Well-Mannered Snake ~ an Artisan Made Dish c1970
The Snake. Happily, a well-mannered snake and not a snake in the grass. He'll hold paper clips for you or jelly beans from the Easter bunny or even your Iphone if you put him close by your favorite chair. He's got handsome faceted bead eyes and, yes, he's a rattler. But he doesn't rattle, being cast in plaster or possibly a quality chalk. Well made, nicely preserved ~ you can rely on this reptilian fellow. Studio/Artisan made Mid-20th Century. About 5 1/2" X 5 1/2" and stands 2" tall. It looks like there was a signature on the bottom, but it's so worn I can't make it out. Free USA shipping; handling fees waived on international shipping.
