Here is an old figural carved wood bird flag pole topper found in Gloucester County NJ years ago at an estate sale. It came right off the flag pole at the property. The bird is 7" tall with it's base. The bottom of the figure is a 1& 1/8" thick round with a circular hole in the center bottom to fit over the pole. There are 2 smaller round holes on the right side to run a rope to hoist and lower the flag. The bird has some of it's original paint and combined with it's shape indicates it represents a Red Headed Woodpecker, a bird that is considered endangered in New Jersey. The bird has a primitive folky look and dates to the early 20th Century. He has age appropriate paint loss and wear to the bill tip. He is otherwise sturdy and appealing.
