A-2019, Blue-Footed Booby
Height: 2 1/4″
Designer: Maureen Love
1989; unreleased (Cream and brown, blue bill and feet)
Mold Book Name: Blue-Footed Booby
Notes: A number of Blue-Footed Boobies were made in 1989 but were not released. In 2001, two boxes of unfinished birds were discovered at the factory (the final coat of luster had not been applied). They were made available to members of the Hagen-Renaker Collector’s Club for the cost of postage.
At least two test examples exist of a companion piece, a Blue-Footed Booby in a ”walking” position with one foot up. The second photo shows this piece along with an A-2019 Blue-Footed Booby which has been finished (luster applied).
