The vintage bird collection, designed by Jim Mullan, was inspired by his fascination with birds and antique objects. The crows were used as hunting decoys in the 30’s and 40’s and the smaller birds were carved in the 1950’s. The original inventory was depleted in 2009. Now, the birds are hand carved, faithfully referencing the originals, hand painted and embellished with a variety of vintage pieces. The unusual relics used, such as croquet balls, binoculars and old toys give each inspiring bird his own personality. Objects cast aside as useless are used to demonstrate the fragile balance between nature and industry.
Bird and ball total height is about 7" not including the plume. Bird is about 6" beak to tail, and 2.5" across the back. You receive the bird pictured in the detail photos.
