Grotesque heavy Cast Victorian Vulture Statue Urn Bird Figurine Ormolu?

A dramatic and quite grotesque representation of a Vulture or similar bird, talons wrapped upon a snake, forming the base. The whole item has strong sense of antiquity- modelled possibly upon classical Greek or Roman statuary? Itself an antique- possibly Eastern European, or continental- ca late 1800s? No makers marks I can see. A truly unique and evocative antique sculpture that will have an arresting presence in any interior setting.

Solidly cast- and not an actual urn as you see the mouth recess of the bird is only shallow, whilst the general form does at least suggest an urn. Its very heavy thick walled item, hollow however doesn’t feel so!

An warm bronze like outer plating suggests this had an ormolu or similar patina, somewhat worn away today as shown. Not sure what the base metal is- but not a cast iron I don’t believe. Condition is generally very good, surface wear only, consummate to the age of the item.

Height is 14 ½ inches (37cm) Weight is approx 4.2 kilos.
