- Made in Taiwan
- Vintage: 1980’s (estimated)
- Details: This is a wonderful musical figurine. We feel strongly it is a falcon, however, we’ve seen it listed as an Eagle so we are using both to describe it. It is made of bisque porcelain and has wonderful detail. The feathers are individually outlined all over this bird. His eyes are very expressive, seems to be really looking at you, the coloring is wonderful, especially around the eyes. He is standing on a rock and his talons are clearly marked. We have taken several pictures so you can appreciate the details. This figurine plays “Born Free”, music is a little slow on this one. This piece is unmarked except for a foil label that simply says “Made in Taiwan”. It’s been credited to Sanyo but we could not find the connection to Sanyo. A great gift for someone who loves birds, especially birds of prey like the Falcons and Eagles. Also would be a great gift for a figurine collector. Beautiful as home decor!

The song “Born Free” was written by John Barry with lyrics by Don Black. It was written for the 1966 film of the same name and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song. The movie soundtrack was sung by Matt Monro, a British singer, however, the song was cut from the film premier in London. Fortunately for all of us, the writers were made aware of the edit and they successfully lobbied the producers to restore it, in a shortened version. Monro’s complete commercial recording was released on the film’s soundtrack album and became the singer’s signature tune for the remainder of his career.
