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. The original of this piece was part of a set of chalk-ware figures (most likely German) possibly made between the wars, but exact age unknown.
