This is a Zitan bird cage with all the fittings necessary to keep a bird well fed: little porcelain bird feeders ready to feed the bird. He would have to be a class-act bird: this is a zitan bird cage. Most cages are made of bamboo, this is the only one I have ever seen of zitan. The top has an unusual aspect to it: a painting of a sparrow by an unknown master.
