Miniature Seagull - New England

Miniature Seagull - New England

Miniature Seagull about to take off for flight.   The carver captured motion and great attention to detail with roughly 100 incised cuts providing texture and a feathered appearance to the surface.  Mostly located on the tops of the wings and tail with groved carving under the wings.  Painted eyes and beak.  Original wire legs with that appear to be tin feet on driftwood base.  Likely from the coast of northern New England though the incised details are reminiscent of Quebec carving style.  More pictures available upon request.Condition: Original with some darkening to surface8.5" Wing Span5.25" Tall
