This is a beautiful pair of chickens. A shiny brown glaze covers the chickens. There is a touch of red on their combs and tail feathers. The rooster is taller than the hen. The rooster and hen both have green felt tabs along the bottom base making it more stable. I did not see any chips or cracks. They are in mint condition. The rooster stands about 10 inches tall and the hen stands about 8.25 inches tall. We obtained the matching set from an estate sale among many other vintage items.
