American 19th Century Neo-Gothic Birdhouse

About

This charming 19th century Victorian birdhouse was modeled on the Neo-Gothic mansions that were then being built for the potential buyers of birdhouses. Cast in iron, it bears the name of its Rhode Island maker, the Miller Iron Company, and dated 1868. Our birdhouse retains its original, and pleasingly distressed painted finish. An identical cast was shown in the Houston Museum of Fine Arts’ exhibition ‘The Gothic Revival Style in America, 1830-1870,’ and was published in the catalog.
