“The Early Bird” Sculpture, £385

This is a deceptively large piece, measuring 42cm long. It features a wonderful oversized time-worn hand brush, probably circa 1930’s. From this, a beautiful butterfly is emerging, which is actually a hand-painted butterfly, on to silk, circa 1880’s, which is suspended on a wire. Next to this is the Early Bird, a cold-painted metal antique blue tit, eyeing up a worm. He is circa 1900, and would originally been part of a much larger sculpture I think. The worm is wiggling away at the far end of the brush handle. I sculpted him from air-drying clay, and he is hand-painted, and, be warned, does look rather real. The words “The Early Bird” are stamped on to vintage blue leather (originally from a masonic apron).

It is £385 plus £8.50 postage within mainland UK
