Another of our great vintage decorative bird images, this page decoration would make a great addition where you need a page accent that is both dark and light at the same time. A bird with open wings looks ready to pounce on a juicy berry amongst the scroll-work type leaves in this vintage image that looks a great deal like a modern rubber stamp.
This vintage image and page spacer was included in The Book of Brave Old Ballads from 1879. It appears to be the work of a print foundry, rather than the artist who illustrated the book – John Gilbert (1817-1897).
