19th c. Folk Art Carved Song Bird:  Hand painted

Measurements: BIRD: 4 7/8" long x 1 1/4" wide x 2" tall from the branch to the top of the bird's head - BRANCH: total length: 5" - FLOWER POT BASE: 2" X 2" x 1 1/2" greatest depth descending to 5/8"

The bird's legs and the wall hanger loop on the pot are metal. NOTE the intricately looped metal feet.

Both the bird and pot show clear signs of having been hand carved.

American late 19th c.

Lovely overall patina and a super example of American folk art.

I am guessing that the bird is a sparrow.

One of two hand carved wall hanging bird carvings. The other is a chickadee.

The price is for this carving only. Please ask for further information on the second carving if interested.
