Stangl pottery birds have been produced since 1939. The figurines were based on illustrations in James Audubon’s “Birds of America” and Alexander Wilson’s “American Ornithology.“ Bisque birds were made in molds, then hand decorated, glazed, and fired. Nearly all the birds were marked with the Stangl name, the shape number, the initials of the decorator, and often the date. During 1944, Stangl made a porcelain “Birds of America” series. Birds were made until Stangl went out of business in 1978, but after World War II, Stangl made fewer birds and more dinnerware.
