Adorable old fluffy batting baby chick decoration measuring about 4" in size. Featuring a chubby little chick with paper wrapped wire feet, paper nose and seed eyes, it is made by packing old batting onto a wire form - complete with Made in Japan label, it dates to the 1920s or 1930s.
Condition is very good with tanning to the batting from age, a bit of fraying to the paper wrapping the feet and usage wear - none of this detracts - chick will sit independently for display. I've used this for years as a Christmas ornament by simply tucking it onto the branch of a large feather tree. Think this little cutie is so sweet - looks adorable nestled into an old Easter basket as well! Fun addition to any collection or display!
