This Antique Pewter Coffee Pot is late Georgian (George V) made by Vintners Ltd of Sheffield. It is mounted on oak and sanded to show off the grain, we have not stained or varnished the timber as we believe the timber will look better as it weathers. However, if you wish to add a coat of varnish you can but the smell may put the birds off for a while.
This coffee pot is an ideal shape for a nest box but could be used as a bird feeder, if using as a nest box this one would be suitable for birds such as Robins, Wrens and Finches, and you would leave the spout open for drainage. As a feeder before putting up block the spout to prevent the seed from running out, to do this I normally put gaffer tape over the inside opening of the spout.
We mount a coin relevant to the age of the kettle on the back timber and this one has an late Victorian penny.
As well as making an excellent nest box or bird feeder it will make a unique stunning feature / talking point for your garden.
The pot is 15cm high excluding the lid, 12cm wide and 16cm from handle to spout. Mounted the max length is 35cm, max width 16cm and depth 22cm.
This Antique Pewter Coffee Pot bird feeder / nest box is £45 + £6.89 postage which will be added at checkout. How ever if you are local to the York area message us before you buy as we maybe able to deliver ourselves saving you postage (socially distancing).
