This is a Antique 1800s Metal Swing Bird Clamp Paint Decorated Heart Detail With Provenance. This metal sewing bird has the remains of paint decoration to the top of the bird and below, with green paint decoration to the C clamp. The clamp has a heart-shaped thumb screw that turns smoothly. The bird beak clamp is tight. An old tag is fastened to the clamp and reads “To hold braided rug/very old-long in the Atkins family, Billys,” to one side and “5 g. grandmother at least” to the other.
