This has to be the most unique tea canister I have ever seen!
It beautifully mimics a bird cage entirely! The lid has a ring to "carry" the tin like a bird cage... I'm amazed by this.
Each side features a breed of gorgeous birds.
The canister does have a few scuffs and rusting areas, which no doubt adds more character to this rare find.
It is about 5" tall without the ring, 6" with the ring and 2.5" wide. The artist to this design is Kurki.
Would make an excellent gift to any bird enthusiast!
This would make an excellent addition to a collection of tea canisters whether it's to house on a shelf or to gather as vases for an Alice in Wonderland themed center piece.
Please message me if you'd like pictures of the lid and the inside.
