In my collecting I have always been on the hunt for antique finials to complement my antique floor and table lamps. When I found this one, I had to buy it because I had never seen anything like it. It is LARGE and very heavy. The first few lamps I tried it on, it almost tipped them over because of its weight! I have since found out that it’s actually part of a 1920s lamp. There is currently one on sale on RL for several thousands.
It is fashioned after some species of parrot and is painted or enameled in many different hues of green, red, yellow and white to signify the bird's feathers. The coloring is spectacular and to try to show this I took photos in different light conditions.
I don't know what the bird is made of, except it is very heavy so I suspect cast iron or bronze??
The parrot measures 6 inches high by 9 inches beak to tail.
