Pie Birds created a funnel to allow steam to escape & kept the pie fillings from boiling over the edge. English bakers started using workmanlike ceramic funnels for this purpose in the early 1800s, the utensils didn't take on fanciful bird forms until coming to the States in the 1930s. The nursery rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence": Four and 20 blackbirds, baked in a pie seems to be the inspiration for the bird design.

This black pie bird was my Grandmother's, sometime from the 1940's to 1960's. She and my Grandfather loved to travel especially to the southwest. Taos, N.M. was one of their favorite destinations as well as northern Mexico.

Hand created from black clay (also known as black mud or barro negro) from Oaxaca, Mexico. The special properties of this region's clay cannot be found anywhere else.

If you are interested in knowing more about this wonderful clay try: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barro_negro_pottery

It stands 4.5" high and is about 4.25" long and 2.25 wide.

It's in MINT condition, never used, with "MEXICO" printed in white on the bottom. The bottom edge looks rough but it was where it was cut off the wheel or block.

Please let me know if you have any questions or would like more pictures
