This cool ceramic rooster brings a smile wherever he roosts. Made in Japan and hand painted in bright cheery colors that were shaded for an aged look, this figurine was imported by Ardco. They were a giftware distributor in the Dallas, Texas area in the 1950s and possibly early 1960's. History on this company is very sketchy. The original foil sticker is still on the bottom and it reads "ARDCO FINE QUALITY DALLAS MADE IN JAPAN". The model number C-1562 is stamped on the bottom, also.

The rooster measures 5 1/2 inches long, 5 1/2 inches tall to the top of his comb and 2 3/4 inches wide. He's in fine condition with a few pinpoint dots on the bottom edges where the paint chipped off (photograph #4). He's a fine feathered friend for a gift or for yourself.
