S e c r e t s:
Holding Court is the first non-box figurine by Harmony Kingdom. This piece features seventeen birds and graffiti galore. Most of the writing refers to different species of penguins: 'Chinstraps have big heads,' 'Kings eat yellow snow,' 'Gentoos do it every year,' 'Emperor posers,' 'Rockhoppers rule,' 'Gentoos have snow balls.' In the upper left hand corner of the fence is a heart with the initials 'PC' and 'AR'. Also on this fence is a 'Wanted' poster for Mad Murphy, who makes his first appearance here. There is no mouse. 'Holding Court' was originally distributed to dealers as a display stand for brochures, but due to requests from collectors, the piece was made available for resale. The first 334 had no frontal plaque, after which 'Harmony Kingdom' was added to the mould. Hallmarks include © and HBC logo.
