Large 1960’s ceramic Mexican-made tiger

Tyger, tyger, burning bright!  You just gave me quite a fright!  Apologies to William Blake, but the tiger is a fearsome creature indeed.  Long, lanky, slinky, and stealthy, he is forever stopped in the middle of pacing…or is he stalking?  Intense orange-red eyes and open, possibly snarling mouth, he has detailed features, well-rendered legs and huge paws (and this from the owner of two felines) … this creature could make a great impression if placed in the right location.  It’s important to note that this big cat may not be life-size, but he is 40″ from front to back.  That’s a lot of tiger.  Right hind leg bears the “Mexico” stamp; other views and information can be found here.
