Hello, Can anyone identify this small 3 3/4" ceramic "rooster riding a horse" figurine for me? There are NO marks that I could see! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! David.

Hi David

Looks oriental to me. The style of pottery looks old but I am guessing this is not. I would think that the chicken is tied to one of the many fables that they have. The front legs are longer it appears from the pictures, the only things I have seen like that are water feeders for flower pots. I can't see yours fulfilling that function but it is a possibility it is a decoration for plant pots.
