By now you realize that I love very unusual items, especially those that have withstood the test of time. When I see how someone lovingly carved this lovely bird, with an artist's view of the grain of the wood, and the feeling of life, I am in awe.
The artist so skillfully used the grain of the wood to depict "feathers" on the bird.
This is actually made in two pieces. The bird fits into the base by its rear leg. It fits and holds very well.
The base measures 8 inches across. It stands 8 inches high.
The condition is Very Good to Excellent. The overall condition is as you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners.
