Vintage Birds at yay retro!
Like many people at the moment, we just love anything with birds on it....so as you stroll through the yay retro! shop you are sure to see lots of vintage birdy items...Yesterday we found this rather intriguing piece of studio pottery. It is very stylish and has little birds perched in trees. It is vase shaped with little feet, then lots of holes in the base...What could it be? Perhaps a cutlery drainer, a dried flower arranger or a celery holder? We've no idea, if you do please let us know!
Our beautiful bird mosaics made from vintage china by Fiona Gurney continue to be extremely popular. These collectable artworks can be displayed singly or in groups to stunning effect, and can be bought in all different sizes & patterns. Each bird (or indeed fish mosaic) is unique, and we think are set to become future heirlooms. Ideal for christening gifts, naming days, weddings, engagements, anniversaries and birthdays, or of course just for yourself!
This large collectable shabby chic tin has a cross-stitch design featuring a Bluebird flying over a pond full of yellow flag iris. It is very aged and so if you love all things vintage this large tin is for you. Made by Blue Bird Toffees & Chocolates, the tin is lined with vintage paper. You could easily use this for arts and crafts equipment or as a button or sewing tin, as well as for display purposes.
Finishing off this bird themed article, we just love this very cute chicken pot stand, ideal for your teapot, to just display or even to protect your worktops from hot pots and pans. It is a rich cream coloured tile inset into a metal base which has plastic non stick feet. At first we thought this was an owl, (that was before we noticed the chicks!) No idea on age, just a lovely item :O) Why not treat yourself to a teapot and we can combine postage for you.
