Vintage Bird Figurines

I was inspired to attend a few parties today
after a long weekend,

So I thought I'd share a few of my vintage birdie figurines.




These two little vases made in Czechoslovakia,
 are in my dining room,
keeping all the lambs company.


Eeeeck. Look at those darling parakeet cheeks!







And 3-D plates in a bathroom grouping


I think these are supposed to be goldfinches.
Of which we have tons of here in SW Missouri.
They love thistle in a feeder and can eat you out of house and home!




These little fellas are being adopted
by Erin and Keith for their anniversary.
They are vintage Stangle Pottery,
and I bought them from an elderly neighbor.
They had belonged to her mother and are from the 40's.
On ebay they carry a high price tag...


But E and K have an eclectic decor with
vintage parrot prints above their mantle.
I thought these guys would be right at home.



And I almost forgot this little Lefton beauty;
A flycatcher, with  gorgeous coloring,
in pristine condition.



Vintage Summer Monday's
is a new weekly party that Alabaster Rose Designs is hosting.
This is only the second Monday and I wanted to join in the fun.


So run by and say Hello
To Melinda at Alabaster Rose Designs.

 


And say Hi to Marty of A Stroll Thru Life over at



Hope you had a Happy Memorial Day ,
Sending prayers for all of those "in service" to our Country.

love,
Debra

Hi Debra,
What a lovely vintage bird collection. I have put most of mine away and now I think I'll bring them back out. I have a few of the Stangles as well. I also have some newer Chelsea House Parrots that are beautiful. Love the pink color and the way you have them displayed.

hugs

I started collecting some ceramic bird figurines last Fall.....starting with some quail and from there,,,I've added quite a few! I haven't a CLUE about their history/artisan's I just pick up a piece here and there because I LIKE them!

I guess that could be said for a lot of the things I collect,,,I haven't a CLUE What era many are from or about the artists,,,,just that they make me happy!

I remember several years back when the internet and chatrooms really took off and some guy sent me a pic of some piece that formerly belonged to the queen of England and stated that he paid like $1700 dollars for it and showed it off at gatherings,,,,,,Of course he made sure I knew Whom it once belonged to and how much it cost ,,,,and I simply asked him, "Yeah, but do you LIKE it??" He was appalled...LOL I guess I should have liked it for the History and the price tag....What a bore! I DO appreciate nice things,,,,and I have a hutch full of "Meissen" that was my Grandparents,,,to me it's what makes you smile or remember that gives joy,,NOT the price tag!

Thanks for sharing Debra,,,,

Hugs and Love,
Shell
