This Antique Pewter Teapot Bird Nest Box or Feeder is Georgian, made by Civic, and is mounted on oak and sanded to show off the grain, we have not stained or varnished the timber as we believe that 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 pewter teapot can be used as a nest box or a bird feeder, if using as a nest box this one would be suitable for small open fronted nesting birds such as Robins, Wrens and Finches, and 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 a early George V penny.
As well as making an excellent nest box or bird feeder it will make a unique stunning feature / talking point for your garden.
