Vintage birdcage or vintage pendant light. I think both but if I had to choose I would go with the vintage pendant light. It’s a lot easier to clean. Birds can make great pets but it does take some tender loving care and frequent cleaning of the birdcage. Birdcages date as far back as the 14th century but the birdcage that we most recognize today started in the 18th century. At that time, birdcages were more reminiscent of the homes that we live in than for the birds themselves. They resembled miniature architectural models that were found mostly among the very rich and fashionable. While structurally beautiful, most of these cool cages did little to support the needs of the bird. It wasn’t until the 20th century that birdcage manufacturers took into account the needs of the bird. And as the design of the birdcage evolved it considered the comfort of the bird and the ease of maintenance by it’s owner. Today, the birdcage is equipped with solid hardware, bird safe feeding bowls, perches, toys and sometimes even a swing. Yes, we’ve come a long way birdie.
