The base is decorated with grass and ferns. The figure was probably made by Heyde of Germany c1900.
It is made of spelter, a mixed metal, and cold painted. The figure is in very good condition with some paint loss commensurate with its age. I have never noticed this before but the base may have been broken off at some time and the back part missing. I have not noticed this before and there is green paint on the edge so it may be an original casting flaw. The figure is 4 inches (10 cm) tall.The tree is 85 mm tall. The base is 3 1/2 inches (90 mm) long. If you are looking for a truly fantastic quality antique, one with history drama style and a great investment piece you will be thrilled.
