COLLECTABLE EFFECTS One-Off, Antique, old or used


Water and canary cage effect:
I am not sure of the proper name or provenance of this so would love to know if anyone can identify it. A large tube (39cm high, 18cm diameter) can be
filled with a couple of litres of liquid or sand and the lid replaced. Lift the tube to reveal a pair of nested bird cages. Its condition is pretty good. The
sliding mechanisms not that smooth but could be improved with some tender loving care.
I would love to here from you if you can identify this or indeed if you would like to make an offer.
