Early 20th Century Wonderful Whimsical Bronze Bird Feeder

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A quite unusual and whimsical bird cage or most likely a hanging feeder, in the shape of a ball cage. It is made of bronze and features a wonderful blue green patina, except for parts of the holding ring. The way the door opens implies a bird or creature has escaped as it is bent outward. This has been a favorite item of ours for years and we just unearthed it out of a storage unit. It will endear itself to anyone who hangs it.
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO VISIT OUR ART GALLERY ON 1STDIBS LISTED UNDER KOREN GALLERY IN THE FINE ART SECTION.
