Athens Slate Leaf Bird Bath or Feeder, Pre Aged

Bring invigorating water or seed to your feathered friends thanks to this Athens Pre Aged Slate Leaf Bird Bath or Feeder. Providing water and food sources for birds helps keep them hydrated and healthy, and this convenient accent celebrates the natural world in several ways. Its slab-like body mimics slate rock, furthered by its varied gray tones and uneven edges. A raised leaf shape with a three dimensional bug figure rests atop the unit, with one of its edges seeming to fall into the integrated basin. This 6" diameter depression holds water throughout the summer, forming a compact and adorable bird bath. Its 1.25" depth provides just enough room for a small songbird, and the textured finish lends an element of safety. For versatility, fill this bowl with 0.5 quarts of bird seed or suet nuggets instead, and use the item as a feeder. Its light and dark gray tones perfectly mimic slate while keeping the detailing clear, and the flat base is simple to place on the ground or the edge of your deck. The concrete construction remains durable through the spring, summer, and fall outdoors, and can be placed indoors in winter for added seasons of service. Make your flowerbed a respite for songbirds by placing this Pre Aged Slate Leaf Bird Bath or Feeder in it. Made in the USA.

Note: Each piece is hand cast with an artisan finish and each unit may vary slightly in terms of color and texture. Due to the inherent nature of stonecasting, small scuff marks, scratches, and chips are to be expected and add to each item's unique character. Do not allow water to stand in this bird bath during freezing temperatures. The item must be drained and then covered or overturned if left outdoors in winter. Allowing ice to form will cause cracking or damage to the unit.
