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 inches long at the base, 4 inches wide and 12 inches 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 $1600.00 US) - so don't let it pass you by.
