Mid Century Wooden Bird Carved Sculpture -  Vintage French Hand Carved and Sculpted  - Unique Vintage Bird Carving- AP/48


This is a really special find - a Unique, Vintage Carving in wood of what we think is a crane, as the house we acquired this from was underneath the migratory flight path of Cranes following the Loire River. Sculpted in France in the late 1950s coming from the region around Saumur; a city on the banks of the River Loire.
This carving, finely finished and detailed is from the hands of a gifted amateur craftsman who clearly spent time watching these birds fly over his home in order to capture this form. It could be  classed as shed art. A beautiful piece of sculpture that would be great decoration for any home; but especially for a bird lover, this would be a superb gift ...... it would look absolutely stunning in any setting as it did in our own home for the last few years. The carving is stained and varnished to give a smooth finish for interior decoration, the bird is  attached to a geometrical shaped block on a flat base. The bird itself is constructed from four pieces the body, legs and each wing. Shows some signs of ware as one would expect with slight stuffs to the wing edges.

The dimensions are: 11" or 28cm high by 19" or 49cm wide and 16" or 36cm deep. The carving weighs 
550grms so just over 1lb.
