Hand made wood and wire French birdcage, Napoleon III to as late as 1915, charming and clean, and ready to add a bottom tray and watering apparatus and your own parakeet or canary. Or, as so many do, use it on the table as centerpiece with a couple of potted plants, flowers and tiny ivy trellising out, as a fabulous decorator item. Were you thinking to use it for a bird, it is complete but for a bottom, and I feel certain it would have had a zink tray into which it simple rested. There are no slid-along indentations in the wood at bottom as you'd expect if it were only a metal panel. Little bend-wire latch on the door and also on the food tray.
Very good for age and type. It's airy and light and darling. Tiny bit of blue on outer corner bars and on the handle. Everything is tight and fit, with a single flaw notable really, and that is the very end of one of the arching top wooden roof 'beams', showing itself slightly fractured (but not apart) just about where it meets with the outer upright corner. I've shown it in photos for your close-up review. No wire missing, though a little bend here or there. Simple and sweet, and just in from France. Full measurements noted on the photos, but it is 15" highest, and that body is 14.75" x 8.25", plus the roof overhang. Nice sized no matter how you intend using it. Clean! No wood worm, no odor.
