Hand Carved & Painted Folk Art Al Schatzle REDDISH EGRET SHOREBIRD
This hand-carved and painted REDDISH EGRET shorebird is a beautiful piece of folk art.
The Reddish Egret, also commonly referred to as Dickey's Egret or Reddish Heron - is a medium-to-large heron that enjoys the shallow salt waters off the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of Florida, Texas and Western Mexico.
The paint colors of this replica are primarily deep browns and blacks with a touch of red. Its detailed feet and legs are made from forged metal and attached to a stone base. The eyes are black and amber glass.
At the highest point, the egret measures about 14” tall and 12 ½” long from bill tip to its primary feathers. The stamped artist signature on the bottom of the wood bird reads, AL SCHATZLE.
This piece of folk art would make a great addition to anyone's coastal, country or shabby chic decorating.
