Vintage Green Verigris Bird Cage With Hand Painted Flowers Circa 1980. This is an estate sale find. I have had an open love affair with vintage bird cages as far back as I can remember, but this one is a unique treasure.

This bird cage measures 23" tall, from bottom to top of the finial. The bottom measurements are 12 1/2" long and 10 1/4" wide. This piece is made out of wood and metal. You can slide out of the bottom, the center is tin and the frame is wood, the narrow bars are metal. The tin bottom has been painted green verigris matching the rest of this Treasure. Verigris is green pigment mixed with copper pigment, see photo # 4, quite a lovely combination. This photo was taken in the direct sun so to show the actual color of this Treasure.

What hooked me were the hand painted flowers which are pink, peach, white and red daisies painted on top of a lighter pale green and yellow combination to almost resemble a hedge,painted on all four sides of the bird cage. The floral motif is painted on the arches, and follows through on the 2 steps to the bottom of the cage. We even have 4 felt feet, love this, as not to scratch the surface this piece rests on.

This would look wonderful in any decor, Shabby Chic, Country Cottage or if you resemble my style it is a combo of vintage French, Hollywood Regency and just anything I fall in love with, the secret is to surround yourself with beauty, inside and out!

If you are an avid reader of my listings we all know who saw this in my Etsy office and now is talking about getting a bird, The Doctor. I tried to talk him out of it, it is a decorative item, not a home for the a feathering family.

He just left my office on his way to the kitchen for a Diet Peach Snapple, got to wrap this up pronto, before he puts it aside with all the loot from my Shop, that he hides under my packing supplies of bubble wrap and peanuts, he actually thinks I don't know his technique, LOL.

Got to wrap this listing up, Congratulations on the lucky Etsian who takes this home, I love this piece, and The Doctor does to!
