Vintage Maddux of California pink ceramic cockatoo planter figurine


Item Details


More details about this item

This is a pretty in pink Maddux of California ceramic cockatoo planter figurine. It stands 10.25" high and is 6” at its widest. The opening is about 2” by 2”. The base measures 4” by 3”. This majestic cockatoo exhibits some real attitude with its out stretched wings, flared tail feathers, uplifted right foot, and erect crest. He is sitting on a brown branch. The piece is hand painted in shades of pink, white, and brown. He has a black beak. The bottom of the planter is unmarked but it is a Maddux piece for sure. I saw photos of this piece on an official Maddux website hosted by the son of the Maddux Pottery's founder. This wonderful bird is in very good used condition and is free of cracks. There is a chip on his right wing and a small chip on the second feather of his crest. There is mild age-related crazing of the glaze. The planter portion could use a gentle cleaning. Please see my other listings for a yellow version of this feathered friend. Thank you for looking. Item location: B 7
