Among the lattice-work, tulips, and hearts, a flock of stylized brush stroke chickens play. Part of the fun of these pieces is adapting these small designs to items of your choosing. Most of the items illustrated here have old pieces that we've found on our "antiquing" trips. If you don't like to shop for unusual metal items, remember Della and Company offer many unique reproductions.
