A figurine of a Bison / Buffalo made by Meissen in the early 20th century. A fun figurine that is very fitting for the US! It is very well modeled eating some grasses. If you have ever seen these guys in Yellowstone or one of the areas where they roam free - very impressive!! The figure displays nicely but the tail has been replaced / restored and could be improved for sure.
That seems to almost always be the case with this figure as it sticks out so much. The piece is marked with the under glaze blue swords underneath as shown , the incised model number V101, a red Roman numeral III or something along those lines and an impressed 23. The piece is 4.5 inches tall, 7.375 inches long and 2.75 inches wide.
