Nirmal Birds

Nirmal Birds

Beautiful tiny carved wooden birds from India, available individually 

The small town of Nirmal can be found in the hills and forests of Adilabad

The people there have made toys from a locally sourced soft wood called Ponki Cheka since the 17th century

The birds are vintage, wonky and have chippy paint

Size is hard to measure, so for scale, the boxes the birds are standing in measure 11cm wide x 12cm tall
