Bird ID, pleeease?

What's this little lovely? A real species or just one of those 'artistic license' creations? Thanks for looking.

Re: Bird ID, pleeease?

Likely not a 'New World" bird as much of the artwork from that period was greatly influenced by Asia art. When based on North American subjects, the art tended to be more specific to a what the artist saw everyday, i.e. crows tended to looking like crows, etc.
Just my two cents, not an art expert.

Re: Bird ID, pleeease?

Could be a (very) stylised Collared/Ringnecked Turtledove?

Re: Bird ID, pleeease?

Thanks, folkseszszsz!

I'm on my way to Google some of those birds and plants and art periods. There's nothin' like a fun little research project on a(nother) rainy Cleveland day.

Very heavy indeed. I think the side(s) are easily 3/4" thick.

BTW, if you have similar, don't toss it or break it. This one sat in our garage for decades until a few years ago when an antiquer-friend urged us to have it appraised and treat it right. That appraisal place estimated possible auction value at 500 and offered me 350... delivered. I "promoted" it from garage junk to living room occasional table immediately! No fermenting in its future!

Re: Bird ID, pleeease?

Let me post to some local groups and see what they say..

If the tail weren't so long, I'd said a pied imperial pigeon like another member posted recently.
