As in most human activities, fashion plays a large part in the antique business. When we started as dealers in antiques bird feeders were freely available. To describe them as ten-a-penny would be an exaggeration, but they were certainly more "available" than they are now. This one is six inches tall and clearly hand blown with the expected broken pontil. Contemporary crimping decorates the apex of the conical vessel. Although unsigned, it was made in the Stourbridge area around 1880. Condition excellent. Worldwide insured air shipping is include in list price. Nothing extra to pay.
