Royal Copley (8") Rooster and Wheelbarrow Planter
I have to admit that although I was a bit of a country boy, I have never seen a rooster use a wheelbarrow other than to stand on it and crow. Note that the wheelbarrow is resting on a square bench on which the rooster is perched and crowing. This rooster somewhat resembles the extremely hard to find 7" rooster figurine. Perhaps a rework? Its interesting to note that there is one of these planters shown in "Collecting Royal Copley" c. 2006 by Joe Devine that shows a rooster perched on a round barrel. perhaps only 6 of the "round barrel" roosters are known! i would not care to guess as to a value. Another of the mysteries of Spaulding China....
A highly sought after planter.
