Wood Craft / Ale hens

Ale hens

Ale hens, drinking vessels of wood in the shape of birds, are made from burls or from crooked trees.

Both the old ale hens in our museums and new ones often are heavily decorated with painting or carvings. They were used at festivities for drinking beer, all guests drinking straight from the bowl or from small bird shaped drinking cups swimming in a big ale hen filled with beer.
