This is a vintage bird cage that was salvaged and re-done/up-cycled to decorate a garden wedding, a 50s turquoise kitchen or as garden decor. It has been primed and painted and is not recommended for any live animals. These cages have been used in many ways, but most recognizable for gift envelopes on a wedding reception gift table.

This cage has a slide bottom consisting of two parts. The blue part can be removed and turned over to reflect a silver bottom rather than turquoise. There are two perches, one of which has a purple glittered bird perched (the bird is included) and a hinged door. I have hung some prisms from the front of the cage which is the purple dot over the bird's head in the first picture. There are slats where glass or plastic panes once fit to block the bird feed and bedding from coming out of the bars. These are no present but could easily be made for under 10 dollars at any glass replacement store. The feeders are not present but could also be replaced at a pet store.

Since this has been primed, it could be repainted another color if desired. This bird cage does not have a name but it resembles some of the familiar brands of the era such as Hendryx and Crown, my suspicion is that it is a Crown Brand, but I do not have a hallmark to say for certain.

~Due to the awkward shape of this item, I am quoting shipping costs for Parcel Post with insurance from East Coast to West Coast. Shipping costs are different if you are closer than the West Coast or on the East Coast. Please keep in mind, that if you are purchasing this for a wedding, give yourself at least 5 weeks for delivery, though often it only takes about 10 working days, just to make sure it arrives and that you will be using it.~

Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
