Porcelain Birds

Since Halloween is dawning, I am presenting porcelain birds from Meißen to you. Some of you know, that I was allowed to watch The Birds a wee bit too early (she was the best baby sitter ever!), so big gatherings of fowl are just plain scary. Hey, they even call it a murder of crows.

If the porcelain birds don’t scare you, maybe the prices will.

    Charlee: “Birds birds birds birds.”
    Chaplin: “Birdy bird birds.”
    Lulu: “You know those birds aren’t going to fly around and entertain you, right? You can’t chase them. The most you could do would be to knock them off a table so they break.”
    Chaplin: “Well, that would be fun too.”

  2. I saw a murder of crows in the ‘hood and took some pics to use on Wordless Wednesday sometime. 🙂 These are nice porcelain birds Jeanine and the prices in front of those birds, which ones I can read, have four digits which is a lot for any currency!

    1. Mmh, if you must … now seems a good time 🙂
      The peacock has 4 zeros! One day I’ll do a post of the tour in the museum. It’s a long process until the figuers look like that!

      1. Yikes! Yes, I saw several with four numbers and thought that was pricey. You’d have to keep them behind glass so they didn’t fall or Heaven forbid a cat or a kid knocked them down. They were highly polished. A friend of the family wanted to get into pottery and said it was a lot of work – her husband bought her the kiln, they had the basement rewired and she did it a few years and grew tired of it. He was mad at her and said if he knew that he’d have just had her keep taking the classes at the pottery-making place.

      2. Do people that can afford that have kids? 🤔
        Oh know, that’s how it goes. I hope they could at least sell the kiln! But I guess a lot of people buy prizy gear for their hobbies and than they collect dust in the garage …

      3. Well their kids were grown and long married with their own kids, but still … it must have cost a small fortune. Yes, lots of people do that – expensive hobbies that they think they’ll like and don’t or lose interest. But really – how many vases and ceramic Christmas trees can you make and give away anyway. She did a good job – we received a Christmas tree from her.

    1. How cool. You really can’t miss it, since it changes the entire city. There are so many people in sports gear everywhere. It’s a bit funny, since your average Berliner is rather sloppy 🙂

      1. Ha ha – he was really excited about it and he knows about my walking and blogging about it, so I told him a fellow blogger was in London for the London Marathon on the 3rd and he gave me some pointers on how she could get to Berlin if she wanted. The fellow blogger and her husband are retired and run daily. They “applied” to go to London, along with another couple. It is like a lottery drawing – Laurie got in, her husband did not and only one of the other couple got in. They made the most of it and went to London and Ireland as a vacation, then two of them did the marathon.

    1. The place is really something else. One day I’ll write a post about it (or spread it out til eternety?) but I really went for the kitsch. I am still not sure, if I found it. The artwork is so elaborate and everything is made by hand. I still don’t know how I feel about this. It’s a bit like a Dolce & Gabbanna coat or a hats for a derby … You KNOW they are not kitsch, it just feels odd. For Halloween, the kitsch twilight zone …

      1. You gnome what they say, don’t shovel more on your plate than you can handle. Welcome to the bottomless pit! But thank you, Sir

  3. I’d be afraid to dust them, probably break them😟 the white peacock is pretty though.
