An Ormolu Birdcage
It is a small ormolu birdcage, but is in fine condition! The base appears like a daisy with the center inside the cage and the petals surround the outside. The top of the cage has open pierce work with narrow petals with circular raised dots inside each petal. It is very decorative and has a hanger in the center. The bars are all straight and are in excellent condition. A wax parrot is perched on a ring that moves back and forth. The parrot has a long wax tail in a soft pink color and a cream colored chest and green head. A beautiful piece!
