This is an authentic Takahashi wooden bird pin on the original card. This little beauty was hand carved with exacting details, and then expertly painting to match the colors of the real bird. Up to ten layers of lacquer were applied to give the birds' shine and to protect their paint. That is why this bird's finish is so smooth and still looks perfect after many years. This bird is a Robin and is on the original card, a really rare find. It's colors are a vibrant red with black and gray feathers. His feet are wired on a real twig and the pin back is attached with push pins. These are all indicators of an authentic and collectible Takahashi bird.
Size: 2 inches from beak to tail
