Pie Birds were originally made to serve as a steam funnel to keep the pie filling from boiling over. The base would be under the top crust and the actual bird above the crust, with the steam escaping through the hole in the beak. Although traditionally made in the shape of a bird, many novel shapes exist, and are eagerly collected. There is an international pie bird collector club that can be found on our Clubs and Newsletters page linked at left. We offer two different shapes made for us by HotOven China Company, the chubby little songbird and the Deco Duck, styled after the popular Harlequin duck figurines, as shown above.
Some patterns have both shapes available, and Red Poppy is one of them. This is the Deco Duck shape and also features platinum trim and the Red Poppy decoration. It is 5 ½" tall and is also $24.95 each
These pie birds are sold as collector items only and most should not be used for actual food or baking use (as non-certified decal decorations on the bases would come in contact with the pie's filling) and they are marked to that effect.
Oh this one IS a popular one! The blue Currier & Ives design is made to coordinate with the old Royal China dinnerware. The scroll motif is on each wing and the base features the engraving "Central Park" and the words "Currier & Ives" all in underglaze. $24.95 each.
Here is the colorful CROCUS pattern, to match that wonderful deco pattern. With Platinum trim. $24.95 each
And we have not forgotten Blue Bouquet collectors either. The elegant floral and blue trellis pattern decorates the base of our Deco Duck shape piebird. With Platinum trim. $24.95 each
One of the most beautiful of the piebirds, this is to coordinate with the old Hull Pottery line of Little Red Riding Hood. It features her face on front and back of the base, violets on the wings, gold on the eyes and beak and blue "brushwork" on the tail and feet. $24.95
These were made for Christmas 2002 and feature poinsettia and holly on the base and gold trim with "Merry Christmas 2002" on the duck's back $19.95
Colors available at present, front row, above, left to right -
These look GREAT with a collection of Harlequin or vintage colorware.
And at only $9.95 each you can afford a bouquet of them- in fact, when you take one of each color, we will make the deal even better- all 6 for $49.95
