Ultra Rare Small Vintage/Antique Victorian Style Wire & Wood Bird Cage Hot Air Balloon Shape.
You will find a few of these wonderful hot air balloon bird cages for sale around the web. But it is very rare to find one this small, which makes it ultra rare.
The intricacy of the design of the wire dome is extraordinary, with each scroll attached to the next with a small metal joiner. Each of the other three sides have a decorative wood framed scroll-shape wire panel, alternating with a flat wire panel around the bottom, complete
with a securing hook for cage door and swinging perch.
To small by modern standards to put an actual bird inside, but very attractive and decorative. Could be used as a plant holder or you could tie a model bird to the swing, can be displayed on a stand/table, or hung.The usage is left too your imagination
This item has not been cleaned or tampered with in anyway. The wire retains its patina and the dust covering the wood adds to its charm.
Its imperfections are pure perfection.
Please see all photographs for part of the description.
