Listing Detail Tabs

Now I could go about making jokes about my sizable, wooden cock, but that could be considered not *entirely* accurate as this is more of a chicken than a cock. That and I don't like to brag... much.

...but I digress.

Dactylanthus taylorii is the scientific name for something more commonly known as a 'wood rose'. It's a NZ native parasitic plant that grows on the roots of other trees, forming these growths that vaguely resemble wooden flowers. Quite fascinating. This one has been partially carved into a chicken, of all things :-)

Quite rare, collectible and sought after, and just $1 reserve :-)

Please note: I regret I cannot send to Australia due to Oz customs restrictions, sorry.
Please examine the photos accompanying the auction carefully as they form part of the item's description. Most of the items I sell are antique, vintage or second hand, and as such aren't in perfect condition. They often have minor wear and tear as you would expect from items with some age to them.

There is no Buy Now option as I'd prefer to let the auction run its course to give everyone a chance at getting something great for a fair price :-)

*** Items are sent NZ Post regular mail (tracked) and NOT courier by default *** Delivery can be upgraded to Courier at an extra cost - please ask.
