A heavy vintage cast metal (signed) archaic design bowl in the form of a stylised bird, with the tail of the bird forming a handle.
We are not sure what the purpose of this bowl was originally, but it would make an ideal desk weight or tidy. The words Made in Spain and the makers name are inscribed on opposing sides of the handle. We have been unable to decipher the makers name unfortunately, despite extensive searching.
The metal of the bowl is silver in colour but is extremely (relatively) heavy at over 670g and the metal is highly tarnished. Apart from lightly cleaning the bowl, we have left the patina/tarnishing much as we found it, as we feel it makes the bowl more interesting. Some buyers, of course, may disagree!
The bowl measures approximately 8.5in tip of beak to tip of tail and the outer rim of the central bowl section measures just over 3.5in by about 3.625in, and about 1.75in deep. Exact age unknown, but believed to have some age because of the patina.
