a cage with a difference...

La Cage - Maison...
This impressive carved wooden cage dates back to the 19th century and was found in the North of France.

It looks just like a real house, it has kept its original tones and is embellished with a balcony, a door and even a staircase. It was not uncommon at the time, the owners make a request of a cage in the image of their home.

What a fabulous idea, now I just need to find someone to make me one....

  2. I am crazy over bird cages and this one is the bomb. What i wouldn't give to have it or one simular. And to have one made like the house, what a great thought. if you find a craftsmen, please pass that name on. Thanks Richard from My Old Historic House.
