I'm always on the hunt for vintage Mexican folk art animals of any sort, and all the better if they are candleholders, too! I really love this hare with its tall ears, painted whiskers and smiling red mouth, plus this pair of sweet little yellow birds riding on its back. The red and green color scheme of its base and blanket make it perfect for the holiday table...though I'd keep it there year round!
6" t x 6 1/2" l x 2 3/4" w. Great vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or other flaws that I can see. I'm not entirely sure of the age; I'd guess c. 1970s.
