I found this item at a yard sale. The markings on the inside collar of the bird's head says, Martin Brothers London & Southall. Also, in the 4th image from the left, there is another marking that reads the same. His head is removable and he is hollow for storage of tobacco. I am wondering if anyone knows how much he might be worth, and if the signatures/markings look authentic. Any help regarding this item is appreciated. He does have a chip on the front top part of his body (neck area). Also, the stain on the bottom wooden base is worn in spots. Thank you, for any info that you might be able to give to me, regarding this item.
