This massive, cast bell is topped with a highly detailed, large stylized bird figure. There appears to be fire issuing from the bird’s mouth and detailed feathers cover the bird’s body.
We think this may be a partridge. This bell is hand rubbed to an aged finish and has a beautiful, clear tone when rung. Deeply cast floral designs adorn the sides and the supporting chain is thick and detailed as well. A beautiful piece of unique garden sculpture!
The Firebird is described as a large bird with majestic plumage that glows brightly emitting red, orange, and yellow light, like a bonfire that is just past the turbulent flame. The feathers do not cease glowing if removed, and one feather can light a large room if not concealed. In later iconography, the form of the Firebird is usually that of a smallish fire-colored falcon, complete with a crest on its head and tail feathers with glowing “eyes”. It is beautiful but dangerous, showing no sign of friendliness
