This well-proportioned birdcage is a feat of craftsmanship, carefully assembled of thin bamboo rods and held together by precise joinery and a bit of string. Two humpback perches run the length of the cage at the bottom, surmounted by three shorter perches textured with grit for added traction. Two porcelain dishes are mounted on the sides for water and birdseed, glazed in the blue-and-white style with floral decoration.

One water pot has repairs to the handle.

The Homes of Chinese Songbirds

Bird-keeping was a popular pastime throughout the Qing dynasty and inspired its own material culture of beautiful cages and fine accessories. Carried around from place to place, luxurious songbird cages were as much an accessory as they were a functional object.

These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
