Pie Birds were originally made to serve as a steam funnel to keep the pie filling from boiling over.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.  

piebird-chubby-red-poppy.JPG (42855 bytes)At right is the "Chubby Songbird" shape pie bird in the Red Poppy decoration.  These measure 5" tall.  They feature platinum trim on the beak and feet.  The price is $24.95 each.  


piebird-duck-red-poppy.JPG (42675 bytes)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 " 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.
