Found this at a local antique shop today. According to the tag it was made in the 1940s. Does anyone know what the spike on the cage floor would hold? I love the three metal Asian figures around the base.
Trouble finding a category for this? Why aren't birds listed?
Thanks to fhrjrz for the following info:
I have been raising birds and going to bird fairs for many years and have seen this type Asian cage a few times. However, it wasn't a cage for a live bird. It was an ornament called a wedding cage. There would have been no perch. The spikes would have had a fairly large white candle mounted on it with flowers around the base of it.
