Bird's pots have been used since the 16th century. This bird pot is based on a model from the 17th century. Just as now, people in the past enjoyed having birds around them and watching them tend to their chicks. This hand crafted pot has an authentic appearance and has been handcrafted in the traditional style. The basic form is a spherical vase, which can be hung on a wall thanks to its flat open back. This pot offers Tits and Sparrows a good place to nestle and helps maintain or bring back a population in an area. During the winter time this bird pot will often provide birds with a place to hide from the bad weather. The proper location to hang this bird pot is a quiet and somewhat sheltered spot (aka not directly in the sun or on the rainside) with a free flight path for the bird. Autumn is the best time to clean the pot.
