What I love most about this vintage mid-century porcelain tiger is the relationship between its body and its face: its body is long and sleek, but despite attempting to come off fierce, teeth bared, its face looks to me just like that of a big kitten!
I've looked online at other vintage ceramic tigers but have not found this one's match. Hand-painted and finely made, I would guess it dates from the 1960s or early 70s. I'd put it atop a stack of books on the bookshelf or on a ledge somewhere--a charming reminder to be brave and get after it!
7" long by 4" tall x 2" wide. Excellent condition.
