Victorian bird cages
Victorian cages reflect the architectural styles that were prevalent in the United States during the rule of Queen Victoria in the late 19th century. These styles include the Stick Eastlake characterized by steep sloping roofs and wooden shingles, the Queen Anne style featuring wide balconies and wrap around and the Italianate style characterized by bay windows and chimneys located at strange locations.
The common theme of all these Victorian styles was extravagance and luxury. Victorian cages are hence very grand and they are a quite expensive too. They are like scaled down replicas of the Victorian style homes of the bygone times.
Types and material
The commonly found Victorian bird houses include simplistic bird cottages, multiple storey bird houses with Victorian tops and exquisite bird houses with elaborate roofs, perches and balconies. Some Victorian bird houses come with an elaborate stand. They are available in various sizes to accommodate different size birds.
Victorian bird cages are hand crafted from material like resin that can be molded. This material allows crafting delicate designs. The material is also not too expensive and reduces the final cost of the finished Victorian cage. This ensures that the Victorian bird houses are within the reach of more bird owners. The other popular material out of which Victorian bird houses are made of is ceramic.
Victorian bird houses compliment almost every type of room decor. When buying one you need not choose the most decorative one. You should opt for a Victorian bird cage that is both appealing as well as comfortable for your bird. It should have a spacious interior to allow the bird to exercise itself, fly around and spread its wings. It should have perches and a removable floor for ease of cleaning. Victorian cages with rooftop access doors and large entrance doors are available and are more convenient. Make sure to pick a Victorian cage that is finished in non toxic shades and requires less assembly.
