Ornaments by Hand & Hammer
3rd Day of Christmas...THREE FRENCH HENS ORNAMENT
Three French Hens This sterling silver collectible is part of a collection of ornaments inspired by the Twelve Days of Christmas, created exclusively by Hand & Hammer Silversmiths. In the hands of their skilled craftsmen, the precious commodity of silver becomes a treasured heirloom. The third in a series of ornaments, Three French Hens take its inspiration from the common use of birds in Christian art. Long before the artist attempted to identify birds by species they were used to symbolize the spiritual. The representaion of the soul by a bird dates back to the Egyptians.
