Another carved whimsy, this one I'm pretty certain the oldest of my latest lot. I love how visceral the hand of the carver is in this one, and with the chain terminating in the cage with two balls, it's a nice one to hang on the wall. The balls are tight in the cage and prone to getting stuck in one spot, but they will roll around with a little assistance!
12" long x 3/4" wide and deep. Links are about 1 3/8" long each and cage is 4 3/8" long. Clearly aged and worn. There is an old chip or chink at the base of the cage, maybe original to the carving but I'm not sure--as pictured.
