At the end of the 30ies Hagenauer produced these tazzas in the form of various birds. They started out with objects that had details like feet and wings but as they progressed it got more and more reduced. Especially this, out of one sheet of brass hand hammered piece is a perfect example for these reduced and humoristic forms.
