Description This small model of a cock has no feet but hunches into a sub-square stand, on which it stands unaided. The head is turned to its left and has sunk into the neck. The feathers of the tail, which are held aloft, divide in two; rudimentary feather markings can be seen. The beak is slightly open (Bagnall Smith).
