For sale is this vintage 1972 sculpture called "Siesta".The “Siesta” is a wonderfully and incredibly detailed figurine hand painted and made by NatureCraft of Congleton, England. The image is that of a sleeping hobo or tramp. He's sleeping in a bathtub and surrounded by refuse or garbage that includes an empty wine bottle, broken teapot, loose bricks and more. He's removed his old brown boots to reveal socks with a hole in the toe and his jeans are worn through at the knee...but he still looks content, sound asleep in his makeshift bed. On the bottom are several symbols in squares as well as a “REF No 821”, “REG (the copyright symbol) ”, “HANDPAINTED STONEWARE”, the company name “NATURECRAFT Est. 1931” and the “crown stamp”. It measures approx. 4-1/2” tall, approx. 11-1/2” in length, 7” in width at the widest part of the base”, and it weighs approx. 4 Kg. There is one thin chip on base otherwise It is in good, used condition.
