Blackbird Antiques
$485.00
Measurements: Standing 6.5" tall x 3" at its widest point

In very fine condition with a working, original thermometer.

Lovely patina showing the wear of years of handling (particularly to the blackened surface of the Blackamoor child).

I believe that the piece is Continental although there is no foundry mark so country of origin is just a guess on my part.

Dating to the late 1800's or very early 1900's.
