This is not a toy

This ornament looks like an old-fashioned metal windup toy, but it’s heavy solid ceramic or plaster. You can see the windup key under its left wing. My sister Xena and my brother-in-law John found it while we were shopping one day and they sneaked it past me and surprised me with it later that evening. It’s Xena’s birthday today. Happy Birthday, sis!
