Hand-carved Comfort Bird


Scrimshaw is a type of art that was popular among sailors of the 1800s. Sailors created scrimshaw by engraving or craving beautiful designs into bone or wood. We often know this as whittling when wood was used.

Popular among these ancient whittling pieces is the comfort bird. A small wood carving that can fit in the palm of one's hand. These sweet birds are often made as a token of affection and support for a loved one in need.

Our birds are carved by hand, by Tony and friends. Each is slightly different due to the nature of the hand carving process. -These are very collectible, and are treated with fresh Beeswax and lavender before being packaged.

We only have a few of these in stock as they are very popular. -Do check out our one off 'Admiral' editions too.
