Antique French Birdcage: Crafted from brass and steel, this birdcage was meant for birds such as parrots, who with their strong beaks could quickly break out of wooden cages. Crafted by hand during the peak of avian popularity of late 19th century Europe. During the 18th and 19th century bird keeping and elaborate birdcages such as this example became a status symbol. In the neoclassical era of Marie Antoinette an exotic bird in a cage would have been an ultimate gift.
