Lead alloy toy. A solid cast model representing a seated hen, modelled in naturalistic three-dimensional style at a scale of c.1:32 or 54mm. It is uncertain whether the head is lost, or whether the figurine represents a chicken seated on the nest with its neck drawn in. A prominent mould line runs along the back of the figure, which may have been cast in an open mould. If so, this would tend to distinguish it from professionally made or hollow-cast miniatures, and may even point to its being a homemade copy of one of these. As a plaything, it would take its place among farm animals, a …

Farm animals became a popular line after the introduction by English manufacturers William Britains in 1923 of their Farm Set, which garnered…
