Does anyone know what the Cambridge cockatoo looked like?


Thank you, Cathy!  I have been trying to remember the US maker of a similar figurine but my brain isn't working too good since my car wreck  :cry:

I looked in Cambridge Colors and they have the Blue jay and Eagle flower frogs pictured but not a cockatoo.

Edited to add:   Images of Cambridge Flower Frogs

But as I was typing this I remembered that Tiffin made a very detailed Cockatoo lamp.  In fact, I think Cheri (Alma's Attic) had/has one.

Edited to add:  The details on the Tiffin lamp are very different also.

Connie - you had a car crash? What happened? Are you OK? I've "been there" and it's not nice. Take care.

Thank you, Glen.  Details in the cafe.  I don't want to hijack Cathy's thread.  :lol:

Hi. This is not Cambridge's Bird on a Stump, AKA cockatoo nor any Tiffin bird production item...matter of fact I'm 99+% certain its not American. Ken

Thank you, Ken. It's a very strange bird indeed.

OK Cathy I thought I'd seen that bird before...check out this link & bird #2 on the first row in amber to see if it doesn't match up with yours. Ken

Thanks Ken. It's looks much more a match than any of the others. I don't own this piece, incidentally - I just saw it on eBay and was curious.
