Large Vintage Country French Charolais White Bull / Cow Figurine
Brand Nancy's Daily Dish
Here is a realistic looking, large white / creamy white Charolais cow figurine. The Charolais or Charolaise is one of the oldest French breeds of taurine beef cattle. It originates in, and is named for, the Charolais area surrounding Charolles, in the Saône-et-Loire department, in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region of eastern France. The cattle also became well established in the Nièvre Province of France, where they were improved and became widely known as Nivernais cattle. A herd book was established for these cattle in 1846, followed by a separate herd book for the cattle in the Charolles region in 1882. The two societies merged in 1919 and today the breed is one of the most important French breeds.
This beautifully detailed figure has a matte finish and stands on a green plinth. It's very realistic looking. This type of cattle is perfect in French or English country decor!
