An Ormolu Birdcage with Feeders
An amazing cage to see two feeders attached to the outside of the cage. The feeders turn completely around in order for them to be filled. A parrot is perched on a swinging wire. (The parrot has a tail missing). All the bars are straight and are connected at the top and at the base. A detailed base has a flower design with extending petals that extend on the corners to support the cage. The top has a dome shape with open-pierced work. The birdcage can be hung in a window or placed on a table!
