April 16, 2015

Large French Aviary

“This tall aviary was designed more than 130 years ago as both a great decorative piece and a functional birdcage. At more than seven feet tall, it makes a lovely statement piece on a patio or poolside because of its green color, hexagonal shape, and whimsical scroll decorations.” George Subkoff Antiques, Westport, (203) 227-3515, subkoffantiques.com
