Parramore Island, VA Curlew - Maker Unknown

Very early and rare Parramore Island, VA Curlew. This shore bird, maker unknown, was made well before the turn of the century, probably around 1880. Although very simple in its flat construction, it is wonderfully aged and alligatored original paint gives it a strong presence. The hardwood bill, which I believe to be oak, is either original or a very early replacement. A worthy addition to any Virginia or shorebird collection!
