An unique piece of art, on wood:
Artwork in the ad is by an artist named Lippman - quirky, colorful and pretty fabulous birds. I'm afraid I have no other information about the artist:
My little handmade wooden plaque was created by Aunt Pat for Lynn's 3rd birthday in 1971:
I think it is safe to assume that Aunt Pat may very well have found her inspiration for the creation of her gift in this ad, which came out the year before:
Aunt Pat - whoever and wherever you are, I'm sorry, in one way, that your niece Lynn did not hold onto this, but in another way, I'm rather glad she didn't - because that meant that I was able to find it and bring it home and I happen to think this Rare Bird is super-cool!
So, thank you for creating it 43 years ago!
