Description from Dora Daar
These shelves are all sourced and found around Portugal. The story tells that they used to be commonly used in houses to put candles on when there was no electricity. They were called “Bica do Papagaio” which translates into “Beak of a Bird”, probably because each shelf would stick out from the wall and at night with candlelight, resemble a beak. They are all made in wood, and carry the passage of time with some imperfections. That is what we most like about them. Variable measurements.
