Sculpture of a birdcatcher
1650 = 1699
This figure shows a birdcatcher, carrying a basket and a bird in one hand. It was carved by an individual called Keizan. The figure has been carved from ivory then polished. This object is part of the Chalmers Bequest. Ledger clerk Alexander Henry Chalmers bequeathed a collection of art to the London Borough of Stoke Newington (now part of the London Borough of Hackney) in 1927.
