Aid From Artisans

Thomas Mann's handmade pelican pin bears Mann's handmade hallmarks: exquisite metalwork with more-than-meets-the-eye detail. A carved, nickel pelican (Louisiana's state bird) turns its head to snap a miniature brass fish so thoughtfully rendered, you can feel its corrugated scales. Studded brass nails line a bronze wing stamped with Louisiana's historic fleur-de-lis mark. Handmade in New Orleans.

        Beautiful piece of jewlery with a great purpose - helping restore the Gulf Coast. A must piece for any Gulf Coaster or wannabe.

        Service and delivery comments:

        My original delivery was prompt but there was no pin in the package. It was 2 days before christmas when it arrived and when I called the staff they were immensely helpful in getting another pin in the mail overnighted with no questions asked ! I was treated with empathy, courtesy and respect despite my being a bit upset on the phone - I will continue to shop at Uncommon Goods in the future after this experience. Thanks again for all your help and Happy New Year !

          I bought this for my best friend. We are both from Louisiana, plus the Pelican with young is an ancient symbol of the Holy Spirit.

            Bought this as a bday gift for a very good friend who is from New Orleans and is devestated by yet another catastrophe to her home town. It is very nice, but smaller than I thought...for the price. However, part of the proceeds do go back to New Orleans to assist with the clean up and rebuild...so it makes it palatable.
