For those seeking the Avian and unusual we offer this large, vintage and rare bronze from France pairing a Cockatoo and Budgie (or Parakeet) perched upon a tree that sits atop a plinth of marble. The birds are full of detail and personality and can come off the branch for periods of play - although their feet will be left behind. The marble is a cool combination of greens that mesmerize and the whole an artistic expression of grace, elegance and PARROTS! The piece measures just over 10.5" long at the base, 4" wide and 12" in height to the top of the 'Too's head. It is unmarked and in good condition with a tiny bit of play where the branch connects to the bottom - from years of gripping in that spot and its weight, no doubt - and the marble and metal are joined via screws underneath. As mentioned before it's a heavy one weighing close to 8 pounds all by itself. We have only seen this piece once before a few years ago - selling for 1500 EURO (around $1900.00 US) - so don't let it pass you by.
