I belong to the "I adore sheep" club, do you? I can't resist them, they are so sweet. This adorable pair was made in Czechoslovakia. Marked Erphila, the mark used on porcelains imported by Ebeling & Reuss of Philadelphia, a giftware firm that was founded in 1866. These animals are about 34 yrs. old, the sheep are particularly desired by collectors.
Beautifully modeled and hand painted, these sheep will look very charming during the holidays, and every day. Perfect for your French Country or English Cottage home, cozy them up near a stack of antique books, or on your buffet next to a decorative display of seasonal flowers. I could not get the color right for the photo, they are a more caramel on cafe au lait color.
