Green lacquered gourd with charming bird and flower
decoration. This piece is from Olinala and dates back
to the 1940's or earlier. It has some condition problems,
there is small crack in the bottom part, plus some paint
chipping on the bottom and one paint chip on the white
and gold border that goes around the gourd.. The paint
is almost all gone from the knob on the top and a little
piece is broken off the edge where the top and bottom
go together, see my close-up images. But the nice painting
makes up for a lot, this is a very well done piece of
handwork. The condition is fair with the damage, but
the bird painting and green color is in good shape.
It measures 5 " tall by 5" wide.
