English figural cockatoo decanter, 1913. Blanc de chine body with softly delineated plumage and plain c-scroll handle. Sterling silver stocky legs with scaley talons as well as head with dramatic crown, funny, saggy jowls, and red glass eyes; hinged with elegantly curved beak that opens not for raucous cawing but for pouring a rare vintage. A great novelty that evokes the country house aviary.

Silver fully marked including Asprey maker’s mark and Sheffield assay stamp. Body marked “Spode / Copeland’s China / England”. Condition: Very good. Discreet repair to reattach one leg.

Dimensions: H 12 1/2 x W 6 1/2 x D 4 1/4 in. #BX966
