Central Asia, Persia, Seljuq, ca. 1040 to 1196 CE. A miniature bronze figurine created in the medieval Turko-Persian empire known as Seljuk (Seljuq).

This adorable avian creature has quite the personality! The entire surface is covered with a deep green patina adding to its charm. Size: 1-7/8" x 1-1/4" x 1" (4.8 x 3.2 x 2.5 cm)
Provenance: Ex-private Bates collection, Clarksville, IA, ex-Joel Malter Collection, acquired before 1990
