This pair of chickadee birds look very lifelike. They are very colorful and are complete with realistic looking eyes.
I purchased the set at an estate sale so don't know much about them. The lady holding the sale said that her mother used to make many different types of animals such as these but that birds were her specialty. I asked about the materials used and she said she remembers her mom using small wood pieces, crushed felt, and pods and glue. I was told that as sets were made, they were wrapped and put away to serve as gifts.
As for their age, she said her mom passed in 2002, but was unable to construct the animals for quite a few years before. Her 'guesstimate" of their age was 1960s to 1990s.
The birds are roughly two inches in size. As far as I can tell there are no pieces missing. The bottom of one has a small amount of glue residue.
Delivery will be via USPS Insured First Class Mail Parcel. Shipping is from Northern California. Since the insurance is for the protection of us both, I split that cost with the buyer.
Buyer to pay $5.95 delivery charges.
I gladly combine shipping on multiple items purchased, as long as all items will fit into a single box. It is best if possible to contact me first to let me know which items you'll be purchasing so that I can adjust the shipping charges, otherwise at checkout you will be charged the full shipping fee for each item. Should that happen, and if appropriate to do so, I refund a portion of those charges.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING depends on the country. Buyer must contact seller for shipping quote before making purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
