Redware Decorated Birdhouse
One of the most popular pieces made in the Greenfield Village Pottery shop is this ornamental birdhouse. Thrown by a skilled hand on the potters’ wheel and florally decorated with golden slip makes this garden art for your birds. See that tiny ridge above the opening on this redware birdhouse? It’s an awning - not just a decorative element. It’s there to ensure that the birds who seek refuge inside — chickadees, sparrows and a variety of songbirds — will stay dry and comfortable. Purposely there is no landing stick to allow outsiders to plunder the nest. This house will be a welcome residence in the backyard. (opening 1.25").
