We recently scored this little teak bird at a local thrift store among a couple of other smaller items. Sometimes it pays to look beyond the furniture and scavenge through the racks of smaller items. After we had the bird for awhile I felt he looked a little lonely, so my daughter and I glued together a bunch of leftover redwood shavings and created a little modern nest for the bird. The designer/maker of the bird is unknown, the bottom is marked "From Bob, 1955". Drop me a line if you might know more.
