January 18, 2011A Mid-Century Modern Rooster
Nope. I am not crazy. I really do have a Mid-Century Modern rooster.
Okay, maybe not completely MCM, but he is mid-century. And he looks modern. So, there you go.
I came across this little guy while in Bay City over the weekend. Yes, he was at an antique mall. And yes, I probably did pay to much for him. But it was love at first sight.
When I first say him, I thought, “Wow.”
Then I came back to take a picture of him, and I thought, “Wow.”
Then I came back to buy him. And as I was checking out, I thought, “Wow.”
So, I think that sums it up:
And now he lives at my house.
This isn’t his final “nesting” place, but it’ll do for now, Rooster. It’ll do.
His tail is my favorite part.
The sticker on the bottom reads, “Bell of California”. I have been looking it up over the last few days, but haven’t found much online. I think a trip to the library is in order to learn more about my new buddy. When I bought him the dealer said something about them coming in sets, but then clammed up and wouldn’t tell me anything else. Huh.
Anyone out there have any info? I would love to hear it!
