Exquisite early upland plover by James J. Ahearn, in unusual raised wing pose. We have handled more Ahearns than most, including the Ahearn family collection, and believe this bird could quite possibly be unique.
Opportunities to acquire Ahearns of this age and rarity seldom arise.
Excellent original paint with wonderful surface patina. Evidence of a small amount of glue under left foot. Signed on bottom "To Peg from J Ahearn Xmas 1943, Upland Plover."
8" tall, wingspan of 5 7\8", tip-to-tail 6.5"
Base 6.75" x 4"
