I bought this a week ago at a shop in Buzzards Bay. I first saw it a couple of years ago, but the condition was so bad that I just couldn't do it,( I've got a house full of such things:). When I walked it up to the counter the shopkeeper tried to talk me out of buying it, but by some miracle I couldn't be swayed.
Though a mere shadow of it's original self, it's beautiful!
It must've been a case or holder for something, looks like it's made out of some type of natural material. The painting is fine, the birds are in relief.
What do you all think?
Any ideas what it may have been used for?, what it might be made out of?
Interesting anyway, isn't it?
Thanks for taking a look,
