Measures approx 3 1/4" tall. Colors shipped are the same as those shown. All Barclay figures are painted with a gloss enamel finish for that classic "tinplate" look. If you prefer a more realistic finish, just spray with "Dul Cote", which is available at any hobby shop. Originals of this piece, which were made by the All-Nu company ca. 1940, are extremely scarce, with original examples selling upwards of $350!
