    Goodwill find. Can't quite figure out what it's purpose is, it's a bird, yes.. but what was it designed to do? Was thinking some sorts of incense burner, since it has the holes in it's mouth. The bottom does have opening with strange plug, don't think you could place a cone or anything to burn in that area. So what is it? Surely not a salt shaker, the holes are too big. Does anyone have idea?

      Could it be a pie bird??
    2. Gillian, 7 years ago
      There would be no need for the hole to have a stopper if it were a pie steam thingy, also the hole would have to be larger, and there also would be no need for it to have the holes as they are in the birds mouth.

      Other than that I await some help.

    5. TiqueNstuff TiqueNstuff, 7 years ago
      Maybe?? I'm wondering about the red clay like substance on and around plug. I've not seen it before, could help identify it.

      Could possibly be a 'Potpourri'. Is it Ceramic/Porcelain? Made in Japan was popular back in the 50s, and lots of items birds decor.

      Very possible Could be, thank you.
