26" tall x 16" wide x 7" deep  ~  Bird Assemblage made out of an art deco sconce.  I found a pair and turned one into a steampunk vehicle (Audubon Carrion) and this one into my version of "Putting on the Ritz."  Notice the crow is wearing a top hat and has a black tie with a starched white buttoned collar.  His feet are vintage serving forks I put into the light bulb area of the sconce (the sconce has been turned upside down).  Love it!!!!!!  See the other sconce assemblage on my JunkMarket site.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Lauretta Lowell
