Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
But...I do not know exactly what it is, or its purpose.
Perhaps it was meant to be purely decorative.
Maybe it was a small trophy. Hood Ornament?
It has a nice weight to it.
The base is "butterscotch" bakelite - authentic American Vintage Bakelite. Guaranteed.
The Pigeon is chrome, with a little bit of surface aging, which is one of the pitfalls of old chromium. Not too bad, but it is worth mentioning, as it is noticeable.
Two of the bakelite corners are nicked. It looks like one of the nicks was smoothed out.
Vintage, used condition.
** This is close to 80 years old, so please do not expect mint condition. In the event that you are disappointed, please know that we always accept returns at Decotini.
The design of the pigeon is pure art deco - and wonderful.
Measures 4" tall on a 2" wide base.
From a NY estate.
