Anyone know anything about these birds? I've seen them in a few houses and liked them. Any info on the maker? I don't think they're C. Jere.

Not c.jere.
My guess is 'seaside gift shop'. Those brassy places packed with nautical
things. Not just one e-bay seller has them and the one that does, has
propeller candlesticks.

I have a boat and have a favorite marine store stop on the way to a
vacation home. We always need a few regulation fishing supplies as they
change the rules often.
They have a gift section and that is the sort of thing they stock.

I like them! But will they translate and not look like Pottery Barn?
I grew up on the Eastern Shore and my mother has similar birds she
has collected over the years. Some from the 50's. Very similar to those.
She has a keen mid-century eye and never renovated. She would like them.
I'm not a c.jere fan but i get the kitsch factor.
I've looked for a similar 'something' for an exterior wall. But it already
has shadows on the cedar siding of the OPO's birds and horses.

Made in Korea. I have the same birds, 7 of them, from an estate sale, and mine have a sticker on the back. Some distributing company in LA. Mine don't all fly in the same formation though. I haven't hung them, haven't decided if I like them enough.

What the heck. $17 on ebay - I'll give them a try. If I find a place in the house and like how they look I'll post a pic.

It almost looks like the sculptures of Hoselton made in Canada, though I've never seen any wall pieces.
