Pie Bird Collection

pie birds

Reminds me of baby birds waiting to be fed

This is a relatively small sample of the types of Pie Birds that are out there just waiting to be discovered by avid collectors.  The black and white ones are fairly common.  They were made in many countries and in many different shapes but the bird is the most recognizable one.  The pink and yellow ones pictured are Josef Originals made in Japan in the mid 50’s.  I have had some really cute ones but alas, I sold them.  Now that I am collecting them for myself I hardly ever see anything other than the black ones.   If you want to check out the variety of pie birds available, check out this site: http://www.piebird.net.

For those of you who are not familiar with pie birds, they are used to vent the steam in a pie baking in the oven which helps to prevent the filling from boiling over.  You place a bird on the bottom pie crust, place the filling around it and fit the top crust around the bird.
