Description
Welcome to Any Old Iron! Stay awhile and browse.
This Green Star Fancy Birdhouse is over the top! There's nothing like it.
This fabulous birdhouse is constructed of aged White Pine wood, chosen for its’ color and character. The weathered green boards were salvaged from a porch roof in Worcester, PA.
The roof is made from a fabulous twelve pointed star disk from a vintage farm implement. Another good day spent in my favorite farm machinery junk yard in Montgomery County, PA. Keeping the twelve point pattern, I constructed a fluted transition roof out of yellow sheet metal which used to be a swimming pool enclosure from the 1950's. Capping the roof off is a rusted hubcap from a Hedstrom Baby Pram or buggy. I find the neatest things in the dump in the woods.
The squirrel guard is an old bearing race from a horse-drawn buggy. The perch is a phillips head screwdriver blade, chrome but going green.
This is a fully functional birdhouse with easy clean out access. Two screws removed on the perforated metal cover on the back of the box will allow full cleanout.

Dimensions: Overall Height 25". Box is 12" L x 8 " Diameter, Star is 14" diameter
Opening: 1 1/2” Hole
Mounting: Post Mount. Easily removed from the gear base by lifting house and rod.
Perfect for the garden, yard, or displaying in your home. Makes a wonderful gift for the avid birdwatcher or the lover of the old rustic look.
Any Old Iron seeks to bring new and useful life to the discarded, lost, and forgotten treasures. Scoured from the sheds, barns, garages, dumps, yard sales, and junkyards of eastern PA and artistically assembled to add a wonderful look to a classic design.
