Help Identifying Old Metalware Bird Sculpture

16 years ago

I recently aquired this metalware sculpture and would like to know more about it. I liked it because I think it is a couple of Hoopoe birds and I have collected old prints and other artwork depicting this cool bird.

The woman I got the sculpture from said that it came with a lot of antiques that were mostly of French origin. She said she thought it was a zinc cast with some copper.

I would appreciate any thoughts at all on what this is or where it might have come from. I'm guessing that it was attached to some sort of base at one time, and after inspection I can see no marks of any kind. I have other pictures if that would help.

This is my first posting so I am not sure how to add pictures, so it make take a couple of trys.
