Welcome to my auction. You are bidding on a vintage parrot shaped nutcracker. I believe it is solid brass as it is somewhat heavy. It has no makers mark and measures approx. 6" long. T is nice detail in the face and is in good condition. What a great addition to your collection.Please take a look at my other auctions for more unique and wonderful items. Ask questions before bidding, as all sales are final unless not as described. I will gladly combine purchases to save on shipping. I accept pay pal, money orders and personal checks which must clear before shipping. Buyer to pay $4.95 shipping. Insurance is extra. Please do not pay for the auction before receiving an invoice from me,,so I may offer optional insurance. I am not liable for lost or damaged items that are not insured. Payment due 7 days after auction ends. Thanks and good luck!
