This cage is quite unique, not rare by any means, but it's definitely not your every day common bird cage. Because of its size I wouldn't recommend putting a real live bird inside, but you can for sure use this to put a beautiful little plant in, put a tray in the bottom, plant a cactus, hang it from your ceiling and put a viney type plant in it.. or just adorn your table with it as a decorative piece. Solid wood construction. Only a minor flaw on the bottom which is featured in the last picture, it shows some chipping on the board that is removable from the bottom of th cage, however this flaw is not seen when the cage is upright. Compare our prices on this cage, to the ones you'll find on the net, ours is very reasonable.
