How long will this take?


I found this at the car wash the other day and thought my wife would love it on our / her mantel.  I wanted to see how long it would take before she put it back in the trash.


As a side note, why did this person have this bird statue in his car?  The date on the back says December 25, 1982.  The trash can at the car wash clearly states "No Household or Commercial Garbage".  Unless they kept the bird statue in there car for 24 years it was at there house or business.
