An early and very decorative 19th century English hand-cut brass wall pocket with stylized bird motif and attractive pierced, scalloped skirt.

This charming piece measures approximately 7" high by 9 1/4" wide by 1 7/8" deep and is in very, very good undamaged condition. There are no splits, dents, deep scratches or restorations. As mentioned, it was made from a good quality, heavy gauge brass. The pocket has been hand-polished in the English tradition.

Similar examples and a discussion of these fascinating wall pockets, or 'tidies', can be found on page 122 of 'The Brass Book American, English and European Fifteenth Century through 1850' by Peter, Nancy and Herbert Schiffer.
