  • $ 67.77

Description: A hand carved lacquered wood American Folk Art bird on branch. The carving shows what we believe is a sparrow perched on a horizontal portion of a branch. The bird carving is smooth and shows detail of the shape of the body and tail. It also shows a head with a beak and two small eyes. The bird has wire legs which are well inserted in the wood of the branch. The bird's eyes appear to be plastic. The bird itself appears to be carved out of dark brown colored hard wood, while the branch is of light brown color. The entire piece appears to be lacquered and shows the beauty of the wood as well as the knots in the branch. The back of the branch is unfinished and has a hole, near the top, from which it can be hung on the wall. The branch will be parallel to the wall with the horizontal piece having the bird standing sticking out. A beautiful decorative piece for your home or to add to your collection. The piece is marked on the back and appears to be a numbered piece. A very well-made hand carved piece of American Folk Art to add to your Americana Collection.
