American, ca. late 19th century. The full-body and orb made from moulded zinc, hammered and worked by the maker into shape, the legs and feet cast from zinc for extra detail and strength. Early surface of very dry, patinated paint. The form of the dove is terrific, with crisp detail, highlighted by raised wings and wide fanning tail. Small size so it can be rested comfortably on a desk, table, or shelf. Stands about 21 5/8 inches tall including the stand, about 12 inches from outer breast to the end of the tail, and a full five inches across the wings. Very good condition. Not a common form.
