Pie Funnels, Vents & Whistles

 
Sing A Song Of Sixpence It is said that the children´s nursery rhyme Sing A Song Of Sixpence inspired Clarice Cliff to make the blackbird pie funnels.
 
Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds,
Baked in a pie.
 
When the pie was opened
The birds began to sing;
Wasn't that a dainty dish,
To set before the king.
 
The king was in his counting house,
Counting out his money;
The queen was in the parlour,
Eating bread and honey.
 
The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird
And pecked off her nose.
 
There was such a commotion,
that little Jenny wren
Flew down into the garden,
and put it back again.
