Wonderfully hand painted and colorful vintage folk art ceramic rooster from Portugal. Rich color with no notice of fading or chipping.
Measures 7-1/2" tall. Original label on bottom.
I found this bit of information pertaining to the rooster legend in Portugal (cock of Barcelos).
"In Portugal, the rooster is a symbol of faith, good luck and justice, and falls on everyday life."
Copied from http://www.alfrescoemporium.com.au/index.asp?p=store&l=755&r=33 which includes the old story if you care to read.
