19th C Bronze Bird Paperweight after Paul Comolera

A rather macabre but beautiful cast bronze desk paperweight in the form of a dead bird, probably a sparrow. The bird is mounted on a black plinth.

The bird is well cast and very detailed with good patina to the bronze.

It was most likely made in France in the mid to late 19th century.

It is in the style of pieces by Paul Comolera, a contributor to the Animalier school of sculpture.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
