Additional Information

Description

The Eames House Bird rose to stardom in the 1950s when Charles and Ray Eames pulled it from their own living room and positioned it with a group of Eames® DKR chairs for a poster. Also appearing in several of the Eameses’ photographs, the masterfully simplistic black bird (circa 1910) with its tapered beak and sleek tail was evidently one of their most prized objects of Appalachian folk art. In cooperation with the Eames family, Vitra used 3-D scans of the original to create the solid alder wood reproduction. Made in Germany.

Design is for living. That maxim shaped a widespread shift in design during the 1940s and 1950s.

Perdew Crow Decoy
I’d never noticed the Eames bird before, but I’m a long time decoy collector: the original is a crow decoy made by Charlie Perdew of Henry, Illinois.

Crows were once seen as predators of other, then more desirable birds and their eggs, so hunting them was popular. The popularity of crow hunting declined as people realized their important place in the ecosystem.

If you do a Google Image search for ‘Perdew Crow’ you’ll find lots of them, both by Charlie and his son Haddon, who used the same patterns.

These look like very nice reproductions of a famous form.
