Sacred Kingfisher Paperweight Whistle
There is certainly something sacred, even mysterious, about this little woodland kingfisher found throughout Australia, New Zealand and neighbouring Pacific islands. Known by its Maori name kōtare, the bird is New Zealand's only native kingfisher species and has survived due to its flashy, vibrant plumage which was considered too colourful for use in traditional Maori clothing.
Each Songbird paperweight whistle is skilfully hand-shaped from clay, fired, then hand-painted by our team of creative artisans in northern Thailand. Because of their handmade nature no two birds are the same, making them even more unique and characterful.

• Presented plastic-free, in a fabric gift bag with story card.
