Hello Italian friends

Today I have visited our national Dutch poultry museum in Barneveld. Many exhibits of fighting cock figurines. One pair of fighting was of special interest.
The text said "Italian Game". It was confirmed that the figurines were manufactured in Italia. The year of manufacturing is however unknown. Maybe someone recognizes the art style ?

Verrrry interesting!
Great models - thanks for posting Willem.
[Shame that they weren't dated. They have leg rings - I wonder are these the same age as the models or added at a different date?]

THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!! according to the photo they don't look like they're really old statues, and they have a kind of "french touch".
Really elegant, thank you Willem
