"Ready to sing"

I have had the pleasure of purchasing many items from Novica and this is among my favorites. It arrived in excellent condition, carefully secure, and gift wrapped as well. When I opened it I was moved to tears, recalling my singing canary, Noel, when I was a child. This item is beautifully carved! I couldnt be more pleased! It looks just like the picture.
