Pretty decorative birdcage on a stand! It has a very frenchy look, with the scrolly metal. It is distressed for that shabby look we all love. It is just beautiful. The bird cage does come off the stand. It is approximately 40 inches tall including the stand. This is for decoartive use only - not for real birds. This item would make a Charming Addition to Your Ecclectic, Paris Apartment, Hollywood Regency, French, or Italian Home Decor.
