Your hens are so cool. I remember the one in milk glass. It was popular in the fifties. In fact my parents had one on their shelf in the kitchen.

Ceramic hens are very popular in France. I brought back two ceramic ones from Provence and my husband calls then "shickens" and I always correct him to say...."dear, those are hens."
Fun post. Thanks.

Sam, I love that you like my hens! My grandmother and baby sister gave me my first one when I got married and moved away from Texas to Tennessee. I loved it. I forgot to take a picture of it as it's in the china cabinet with a poor broken back! I dropped it very early on and glued it back together as much as possible, but there was a missing piece and it, alas, has a hole in it!

Would love to see your hens or "shickens". Are they majolica? Thank you so, so much for visiting and leaving your comment.

Hi Mark!
They are so much fun, aren't they? I would collect more but I think my shelves are beginning to buckle under the weight of all my glass! Seriously, though, I can't bear to think of someone going through my collections and selling them off in an estate sale. Hopefully, my children and grandchildren will see their beauty and value and decide to keep something of "Granny's!"
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my hen collection.
