This beautiful pair is in lovely condition. The pieces feature sparrows, one with the tail up, called Optimist and the other with the tail down called Pessimist.

The decoration is beautifully done and the colours soft and muted. Each is signed, Optimist is signed AP for A Nielsen and Pessimist is signed AE, we have seen elsewhere this is also A Nielsen

The pieces are marked to the back with the Royal Copenhagen three wavy lines and Optimist has a crown mark back stamp dating to the period 1975-1979.

The figurines are both factory firsts.

The pieces stand 65mm and 60mm tall.
