VINTAGE MID CENTURY COLORFUL HAND PAINTED PARROT STATUE
A beautifully colored vintage parrot statue probably from the mid-century when knick knacks were used for a lot of decorating.
Lovely coloring in emerald, moss, sky blue, indigo, rust, earth and dark brown. It looks as though it might possibly be hand painted with a glaze over it especially from that era. Not sure if it is porcelain or ceramic. Very nice detailing on the parrot statue.
The parrot is perched on a branch with leaves and berries. Very tropical looking with a Palm Beach look.
Approximate measurements - 4-3/4" high and 2-1/4" across at the widest point.
There is a maker's mark of a crown and laurel leaves on the bottom but I cannot read it. Crazing on the bottom and soiling but I do not see crazing on the parrot itself. There is a good weight to the statue for being as small as it is.
It would be beautiful around plants or on a book shelf for decoration.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
