This bird dates from 1945 as written on the bottom in pencil. He measures about 8 long and sits atop a little multi roofed house.
I believe he is a Blue jay and hails from New England or the Pennsylvania area. He is in great condition with wonderful deep tones and slight alligatoring of the paint. The prop he is attached to is a little rusty.
Beautiful primitive carving and painting makes him incredibly charming. Lots of patina, just wonderful! The item "ANTIQUE PRIMITIVE AMERICAN FOLK ART CARVING BLUE JAY BIRD ON HOUSE 1945" is in sale since Sunday, October 7, 2018. This item is in the category "Art\Folk Art & Indigenous Art".
