15 Keramos Austria Buck Doe Deer Running Porcelain Figurine Rare EUC. Stunning figural of a running pair of deer - a buck and doe - running.As noted, there are some very tiny paint flaws on this - generally some skips. These are NOT chips though the glare makes them look like nicks or chips. Measures about 15 inches long and 11 inches tall. Based on the markings and cut into the ceramic, appears to be one of the Wilhelm Thomasch pieces from right after WWII. I have another deer figurine as well - a doe and fawn that may be just a bit later - probably the 1960's.
