2 Vintage Metal 1940s 50s? Cast Aluminum Estate Flamingo Lawn Yard Ornaments Nr :
I love these metal, vintage, pink flamingos. This is for both. I uploaded as many pictures as I could, 12 pictures, hoping you can tell more about them and the condition. My guess is maybe form the 1940's or 50's ? But, please be your own judge. The estate I purchased them from, on the invoice they have them as 'cast aluminum' so I assume that's what they are. One has a little bit of open space on the back that looks like it could be filled in. I think you will see what I am referring to in some of the photos. They do show age related wear and have been displayed through the years. But, these are getting so much harder to find. Actually, these are the first I've come across. I remember my great grandmother had some displayed in her yard. I also noticed the metal rods/stakes/legs are bent in places. They are also made for one of the legs to be shorter than the other, I assume, because, they are the same on each one. Some of the color has worn and there's some surface wear and again used in condition wear. On one of the flamingos, the legs were already loose. The other one, it's legs are more secure. For shipping purposes, I will see if there's a way those legs can be removed as well. If someone wanted to solder them back, they could. Or, if someone had rather me not remove the other legs off the other one for shipping purposes, please let me know. I am not going to remove if there's any chance it looks like it's going to be too difficult to remove. But, again, the others had already been removed, or were loose and removable when I purchased. From the front to the back, the flamingo measures approximately 14 1/4 - 15 inches and this is the flamingo only, from the front of the beak to the end of the tail. Again, this is for both. Thanks for your interest and looking :)
