I really went "sky-high" on this one-of-a-kind birdhouse. It's got a beautiful silverplate ice bucket topping a tall brass pedestal candlestick. Tons more silverplate, a glass door knob, hand carved silverplate spoons made into rose leaves, and much, much more!

Here are the measurements...
Height: 33.5"; Width (side to side):9"; Depth (front to back): 12.5".


Pattern or design used: My own design - Brian GadgetSponge
