Width: 12”

The wonderful life size composition and iron statue of a greater flamingo, polychrome decorated and standing on a naturalistic circular base surviving in original condition from mid-century France.

The piece shows only commensurate wear to the paintwork with no damages or repairs.

Finding an original vintage example like this is always a real treat, with most seen now being contemporary reproductions made with lesser materials and with less joy.

Masses of fun, inside or out.
