More Hakuli - Giraffe
I recently bought this cute little Giraffe, from a shop who always places price tags over any marks and then dares you to peel them off !! I did not - I was already sure that it was a good thing and hope for Hagenauer, Richard Rohac or Bosse markings.
No such luck
..... but it was marked Hakuli. Like the Head featured in an earlier post "Hakuli - Bronze Tribal Head"; so like the Austrian designs of the 1930's. I still do not know the connection, if any.
Has a refugee from Austria settled in the new Israel and established a foundary making similar wares to their pre-war designs ??
