This bird design is based on a decorative element carved on the apron of a china table in the collections of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. The table was made in Williamsburg around 1770 for the Byrd and Lewis families of Tidewater Virginia. The delicate entwining c-scrolls and lighthearted whimsy of the design are typical of the rococo style, which dominated English and European decorative arts from the 1750s to the 1770s.
