Folk Carved Burl Bird

This item has been sold.

This wonderful folk-carved bird is from a piece of burl with long wire legs and feet painted on the base.  The beak is painted yellow.  The bird is 5" long.  Mounted on the base the overall dimensions are 5" tall by 4" long and 3" wide.

The octagonal base has nicely molded sides and is painted green.

The carving is in very good condition with some minor surface scuffing.  The surface appears original with no restoration.  The painted wooden base has some paint loss.

We were taken with the way the carver used the natural texture of the burl to create his bird, the whimsy of the bandy legs and the painted feet on the base.  Looks like a robin to us.

An estimated $20 is included in the price to cover packing, shipping and insurance.
