This tiny iron bird box was made in the 60s by Florenza (4th photo). It is just two inches long. It was intended to hold saccharine, originally the little round magnet you see in the 4th photo held a tiny pair of tongs for picking up a little cube. This is an unusual example, as far as I can tell from my research, in that instead of being silver or gold colored it is white with green and gold antiquing. Florenza is an American Company.

Flaws: this is where we get into a bit of a mystery. As of this writing, I have heard from another Etsy member whose similar Florenza bird displays both the blunted beak with missing paint and the slight gap in the upper body extending back maybe 5/8 of an inch. Was the bird meant to look the way it does, or were both birds dropped in the past in exactly the same way? A mystery.
