The "bible" of Stangl Pottery is Rob Runge's "Collector's Encyclopedia of Stangl Artware, Lamps and Birds." On Page 108 of that remarkable book Runge states that   the bird above "is based on Audubon's Carolina Parakeet eating a cocklebur seed." **    I suppose for most of us, however,  he's just a parrot seemingly gnawing on his foot. Produced from 1940-1947, he's 5" tall and comes with a nice mark on the bottom. (Use Mouse Over) "RC" stands for Ruth Curtis, the decorator,  and "F" stands for Flemington, NJ, which is where it was decorated.   No chips, cracks or repairs.  (Item 3449) To see other Stangl and more birds  CLICK HERE!)
** Unfortunately, the Carolina Parakeet is now extinct.
