    Hello everyone.
    This is a recent purchase, not what i would normally buy, but I thought it would be just so cute and the price was right!
    The title is how the seller described this bird, and it measures 3 inches high and weighs 228gm.
    The seller's photo was not the best so I was happy when it arrived and it was so cute!
    There do not appear to be any maker's marks and I have not removed the green felt from the base.

    I really have no idea how old this might be, could have been made yesterday, but that's ok because he looks great sitting on the mantle with a few other small animals.
    Hope you enjoy seeing him, thanks Judy

      Fabulous falcon Judy, I love him! He's beautifully textured, and what a great pose atop a gloved hand, I can imagine him as a regal pet, being flown by his master

      Judy, your new buy is regal! So well made, good hunt! ;-)

      Strange that Ken saw a falcon getting a sparrow... we had lunch at an outside restaurant yesterday. There was a flock of sparrows waiting for crumbs near us, a big lawn in front of the terrasse, and a falcon attacked and took one who was away with its bread piece :-(
      We had to say to the kids witnessing the scene that it was a mama falcon who had to feed her chicks...

      Hi Pascale, thank you! They must be very game birds these falcons, to come in amongst people like that.....or very hungry!!
      How are the twins and kitty? I keep forgetting to ask you......

      Hello Keramikos, thanks for the comment and the love. I really have no idea what this is made from, it is actually really black so I lightened the photos so you could see the detail. It feels like a coating of some sort!!
      I just went with the seller's description and it is really heavy......goodness knows, not that it really matters, it is pretty cute in my collection and I appreciate you bringing this to my attention :-)
