Vintage Gilt HIGHLY Detailed Parrot Figurine
This is one of the, if not the most highly detailed cast metal pieces I have seen. It is either brass or bronze with gilding. The attention to detail is phenomenal, with even individual strands of feathers visible.
The piece is a representation of a parrot (not sure which species exactly) with a friendly, inquisitive expression on its face. Truly almost looks like it's ready to start running or taking off into flight.
In very good condition for age. Some minor wear to gilding, especially areas that are flush with surfaces. The piece appears to have been cast in two separate pieces, the body being one, and the legs the other. There appears to be a seam that is somewhat visible, above the legs, where the two were attached.
Just a phenomenal piece, incredible design and craftsmanship, with great weight to it. Real showstopper.
